Our goal is to help students acquire the skills and confidence necessary to succeed by providing support and connecting them to resources.
Although upper-division advisors reside in their academic colleges, they work closely with the Center for Student Success through the Advising Council.
The Center offers a free peer tutoring program for a wide variety of subjects. Though the exact list depends on tutor availability, generally the Center offers tutoring in math, history, science, and computer science. Please visit the Student Success Center (SCC) for a current schedule. Most peer tutoring occurs on a drop-in basis with no appointment necessary, but feel free to schedule an appointment with Penji!
Courses We Tutor (subject to change):
The Center provides free writing assistance and writing resources to University of Houston-Victoria students in Victoria and Katy. Face-to-face or online, the Center staff review class papers for students.
During sessions with writing consultants, individuals may discuss a paper or document in progress. Trained tutors review these documents, discuss techniques for analyzing and revising assignments, and assist students to devise solutions to writing problems. Writing consultants also provide a similar service online. UHV students may make an appointment for face-to-face tutoring through Penji.
To email documentation to a writing consultant, please use the Submit an Assignment for Review to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will review the document and offer comments and suggestions.
Note: There is a 3-5 business day grace period on returning the documents for review. Please be aware that we will need written permission from an instructor before we can review essay exams.
