This is a resource page for tutors and learning center managers that work in higher education.

Success Stories 

One student in particular comes to mind.  He has  ADD and struggled through Tech Math
and got a C.  In Calculus, the study skills suggestions and other tutoring
started to sink in.  His work became neater and more organized.  He did
more and more work, even work that was not assigned.  He asked questions
about details like correct notation and vocabulary.  He completed calculus with
a well deserved B, and was justifiably very proud of himself. (Editor's note:  it is very
unusual for a student to increase his/her grade in the Tech Math to Calculus sequence.)
