Listed below are some of the frequently asked questions about the Academic Center for Excellence for faculty at Kentucky State University.
Can I expect my students’ papers or homework to be error free if they seek TLC help?
Absolutely not. TLC peer support helps students to improve their abilities to organize, develop, revise, edit, and eventually own their academic success.
How long does an TLC session last?
TLC sessions last approximately 30 minutes.
How do I check on my students’ progress?
If you have referred a student to the center for academic support, you may request a progress report monthly or as reports are needed.
How do I refer my students to TLC?
Our faculty referral form is now available online. Anytime you would like to refer a student to work on a specific skill, feel free to complete one of these forms. The student must contact TLC or schedule an appointment using TutorTrac. Instead of a blanket referral, we suggest session goals to help maximize the student’s center usage.
When can my students begin using TLC services?
Students can use the TLC anytime, setting up an appointment with a tutor, or visit the center for drop in tutoring during center hours.
What services does TLC offer?
TLC provides assistance in mathematics, essay and research paper development, reading comprehension and textbook management, vocabulary building, oral communication, science, languages, critical thinking skills, study and test-taking strategies, personal learning styles assessment, note-taking, and documentation. TLC staff always encourage students to attend class regularly.
