Support Operations for Academic Retention (SOAR) provides services for Texas Tech students as a supplement to classroom and lab instruction, enabling them to achieve academic success and develop lifelong learning skills.
Support Operations for Academic Retention will provide quality services to assist the academic achievement needs for Texas Tech students by:
- Establishing collaborative relationships with faculty to strengthen the students' educational experience
- Increasing learning opportunities to foster an eagerness to learn and contribute toward lifelong learning for all Texas Tech students.
- Ensuring that all students using any area of SOAR experiences full quality service addressing their personal and academic needs.
The ultimate goal of the Learning Center is to provide a student with the resources needed to obtain academic independence and success. Through positive interaction and effective communication, a peer tutor is able to create an educational environment that inspires a student to develop autonomous learning strategies.
We provide customized plans for student development and developmental coursework in the key areas of reading, writing, and mathematics to ensure each student achieves college-readiness and success in their selected academic majors and beyond.
Free, peer-led interactive review sessions for Texas Tech's most difficult courses. The review sessions are led by Supplemental Instruction Leaders who have excelled in the course, and regularly interact with faculty to tailor the review sessions.
