Academic Assistance

We encourage students to come to us if they:

  • Have academic difficulty in one or more classes
  • Feel overwhelmed by work
  • Have too much to do and not enough time to do it
  • Cannot seem to take good notes
  • Study a lot, but do poorly on exams



We help students analyze their strengths and weaknesses in various aspects of learning. These findings then become the basis for course-specific study skills counseling.

Study Skills & Techniques


We work with faculty to select and train tutors. Our office assigns these tutors to work with students in one-on-one or small group settings.

Peer Tutoring


Additional services are available to properly documented students with disabilities. We meet with students to determine appropriate accommodations as they relate to their time at Houghton.



Students who need to improve their study techniques are encouraged to sign up for the one credit College Study Methods course, CLLS 102. All the above topics are covered. Class goals include developing an effective system for managing time, taking notes, and studying to learn.
