Why I love working for the Academic Success CenterWe are all lifelong learners, and it's so important that every student understand his or her own learning style and habits. I get to work with students on those skills every day, and it's a joy. 

Best study tip: Go over your in-class notes for 10-15 minutes right after class ends. It easily works 30-45 minutes of weekly studying per class into your schedule, and it will greatly improve your ability to retain information. 

Interesting fact: My husband took me to a tiny restaurant in Florence, Italy on our first date.

Why I love working for the Academic Success CenterI love working with college students.  College was such a pivotal time in my life, and I love helping students discover where their passions are and how to excel in school and, in essence, life.

Best study tip: Study at a time when you are mentally at your best.  If you think more clearly in the morning, don't try to force yourself to stay up all night - just wake up early to do your studying. 

Interesting fact: I attended several balls for a traditional German folk club while studying in Germany.
