Smarthinking Online Tutoring

STAR (Early Intervention) Program
The Success Training and Referral (STAR) Program is a program designed to assist students in mastering skills that will provide them with long-term academic success. It functions similarly to tutoring in that students make 30 minute appointments. Unlike tutoring, however, in a STAR appointment students do not focus on a specific content area. Instead, they will focus on skills that will help them throughout their academic careers. STAR appointments will target areas such as time management, test taking tips, study strategies, and more
Encourage your students to find a few individuals in class with whom they can study, and the Learning Center will provide them with…
- A group study room
- A seminar on effective study groups
- A mentor tutor
- Learning Center resources (books, DVDs, interactive computer programs, etc.)
- Study Groups
The SI Program employs students who have successfully completed the a course at LSC - Kingwood as SI leaders. In close partnership with the professor, SI leaders plan and facilitate activities that not only reinforce the content, but introduce and exercise study skills, critical thinking, and problem solving methods that form a foundation for student success.
If you would like to nominate a successful student in your class to the SI program, or if you would like to have an SI in your classroom next semester, please contact the SI Coordinator, Charlotte Iserhardt.
