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 subject for which they provide learning support.
