UCC Tutor Spotlight

At the Success Center we believe that learning how to ask for help is one of the most important skills a college student can acquire.  Rylie Brausam, a tutor in the Success Center since Fall 2016, shared the following with us: “I know how it feels to be stuck in a class and not know where to turn, so I became a tutor to make sure that doesn’t happen to others.  I’m a writing tutor in the Success Center, and I’m here most mornings.  Stop by if you need help—or just a second opinion on your paper.  I look forward to meeting you.” If you are feeling frustrated with any of your courses, stop by to chat with a tutor today.  No appointment necessary!
