The Academic Resource Center (ARC), based on the Medford/Somerville campus, provides academic support to students throughout their academic career at Tufts. The center offers study strategies, one-on-one tutoring, and workshops in writing, public speaking, and time management. International and multilingual students for whom English is not their first language may take advantage of the English language support offered by the center. Our programs promote engaged, collaborative learning that build on your strengths while addressing your concerns and questions.
On the Fenway campus, students can schedule one-on-one writing consultations or time management and study strategies consultations. Writing consultations can support you through any stage in your writing process – from brainstorming and organizing ideas to clarifying and polishing your work. Our writing support is collaborative and conversation-based, and we believe every writer deserves a discerning, compassionate reader. Time management and study strategies consultations help you to create more effective learning strategies and solutions for learning and life balance based on your style and needs. You can collaborate with a consultant on the topics that interest you: planning (designing routines, scheduling a busy week, breaking big projects into smaller tasks), learning strategies (reading and skimming, note taking, studying, test taking, and test anxiety strategies), and well-being (life balance, relaxation, motivation/procrastination, perfectionism, prioritization).
