The Academic Resource Center (ARC) is Illinois Institute of Technology’s primary teaching and learning center on the university’s Mies Campus in Chicago. Its mission is to provide students with the resources necessary to achieve academic excellence through student-centered learning. ARC services are conducted by undergraduate and graduate students with exceptional grade-point averages, communication skills, and a desire to help others. All resources are free to use for current Illinois Tech students.
How do I Utilize Peer Tutoring at the ARC?
You can visit the center in Paul V. Galvin Library Room 007 during available tutoring schedules. All students are required to sign in when visiting the ARC. After you are signed in, identify your table with printed labels or by asking the front-desk monitor. The ARC scholar, if available, will greet you to begin your tutoring session. If you are joining the ARC during drop-in times, other students may be present and the scholar will move around. To make an appointment with an ARC scholar or to find out who can help you with your course, fill out this form. Additional information about ARC services are available in the About section of this website.
How Can I Schedule Group Sessions, Exam Reviews, and Workshops?
Group sessions, exam reviews, and workshops are requested by students, faculty, and ARC scholars. Group sessions and workshops are scheduled based on a topic, whereas exam reviews are question-and-answer sessions that are scheduled a day or two before an actual exam. All upcoming events are listed on the tutoring schedules. You can choose to make an appointment or sign in when your visit the location.
