SARC provides free tutoring to students enrolled in courses associated with the current UCF semester’s schedule. Additionally, SARC provides tutoring for the College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) and the Veteran's Academic Resource Center (VARC) within their lab facilities. With all three tutoring facilities, SARC offers peer tutoring for over 300 hours per week within over 30 subjects. Subject areas include but are not limited to - Accounting, Statistics, Biology, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physics, Human Physiology, and Astronomy. No appointment is necessary and joining or needing to leave during a tutoring session is accepted.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) provides a series of weekly study sessions for students taking difficult courses. At each SI session, you will be guided through course material by your SI leader who has previously taken the course and earned a grade of “A.” SI leaders attend class lectures and provide interactive study groups to help students develop effective ways to learn the course material.
SARC offers Online Peer Assisted Learning (OPAL) sessions for selected UCF courses using Adobe Connect. OPAL sessions allow you to attend a study group with a SARC peer tutor or SI leader from anywhere, as long as you have access to a computer with internet connection. OPAL sessions are a great option for students who are not able to attend regularly scheduled peer tutoring or SI sessions at the Orlando Campus.
SARC’s Learning Skills Specialists provide FREE one-on-one consultations designed to help develop the study skills necessary to meet the demands of college level learning. During these consultations, students will have the opportunity to assess study skills, understand individual learning style, and learn new strategies that will make you a more efficient, effective learner at the college level.
The University of Central Florida provides reasonable accommodation upon request. Advance notice is encouraged to best meet the needs of attendees and can be arranged by calling SARC at 407-823-5130.
