Assistant. Assist students in improving academic achievement by
meeting with them to clarify concepts and skills needed for success.
Assistance might include: reviewing class material, discussing the
text, predicting test questions, formulating ideas for papers, or
working on solutions to problems. Learning support is a supplement to
teaching. Learning Connection Scholars are not expected to know everything about the
