What services does the Tulane Academic Success Center offer?
The Tulane Academic Success Center (TASC) offers various free services to undergraduate students. Professional staff members provide Success Coaching while trained Peer Educators provide Tutoring, Writing Assistance, Supplemental Instruction, Peer Coaching, and Workshops.
What is Success Coaching?
Success Coaches are accredited life coaches who assist students in reaching goals related to academic and personal pursuits. Success Coaches meet individually with students on a regular basis to challenge and support them as they navigate life at Tulane. Some popular coaching topics include time management, accountability, realistic goal-setting, improving study skills, investigating learning styles, reducing test anxiety, the transition from high school to college, exploring interests and strengths, decision-making, and improving campus involvement.
How does one apply for Success Coaching?
Prior to the start of a new semester, students can apply by filling out the application. A parent, professor, academic advisor, or other staff member may also nominate a student. When there is no longer availability, applicants will be placed on the wait list or offered the option to meet with a Peer Coach.
If a student is struggling after midterms and is not already meeting with a coach, he or she can apply to meet with a coach for Academic Recharge. Academic Recharge is a series of individualized meetings focused on creating a plan for a student's academic success.

What is Supplemental Instruction?
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic support program that offers weekly review sessions for some classes at Tulane that are traditionally difficult. SI leaders are students who have previously excelled in the class; they hold regular review sessions and are available to assist students outside of class. The SI schedule can be found here.
