“The ASC is true to its name and was a breath of fresh air for me. I always found math challenging, and when I was introduced to the ASC and my tutor, I was in my second semester of Math 095.The tutors empowered me and ensured that I would overcome my academic struggle. They do any and everything in their power to guarantee the success of their students. They aren’t just tutors. They are people who have once been in our position and can relate to us. If it had not been for the ASC, I wouldn’t have the drive and confidence that I have today, and for that, I am thankful. The resources and help I was given made me the student that I am and will someday make me the nurse that I aspire to become.” – Olivia Stacey, student
