ACADEMIC SUCCESS CENTER
Academic Success Center
In the Academic Success Center, our name says it all – we are here to help Maranatha students succeed academically! Our mission is to promote academic success for all students, to enhance student performance, and to increase student retention. We help students to become better learners.
Entering college often means being introduced to a new learning environment: courses proceed at a rapid rate and cover large volumes of material with few tests. Students who develop additional methods of learning are able to adapt more quickly and be successful in their college careers.
One-on-one tutoring is offered to all Maranatha undergraduate students and is available for many subjects including writing, mathematics, sciences, languages, communication, business, Bible, and accounting. Tutoring sessions are generally one hour long and are held twice each week for the entirety of the semester. Our tutors are well-qualified, responsible peers who possess sensitivity and compassion toward the needs of our students.
Study Groups are also offered for more traditional classes, especially in the social sciences, math, and English. These groups are also led by a student who is experienced in the subject matter. These sessions are held one or two times each week and are voluntary.
