Academic Resources


The Academic Success Center (ASC) provides free tutoring and writing consultations to all actively enrolled University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee campus students. Tutoring is provided for a variety of courses and subjects such as, Accounting, Biology, Chemistry, Finance, Math & Statistics, Physics, and Spanish. For tutoring information on our other campuses please visit the St. Petersburg and Tampa campus websites. 

Students may choose between face-to-face or online tutoring, but must have the necessary technology support for online sessions. For writing consultations, students may choose between face-to-face or asynchronous e-tutoring sessions where they upload their documents to their scheduled sessions before the session starts and get feedback after an hour. Students may access their documents with feedback any time after an hour by clicking on their scheduled session on the ASC scheduler. The feedback document will be placed right below the student’s original document in the dialog box and can be downloaded by clicking on it.

Writing style guides for APA, MLA, Chicago style and other resources are also available under the “Tutoring Resources” tab.

Students may cancel appointments any time before their tutoring session starts by cancelling it on the scheduler (view instructions for cancelling appointments by clicking on download brief text tutorial) or by calling 941-359-4452 to cancel without penalty; however, we suggest that you cancel appointments as far in advance as possible to make sessions available to other students.

Appointments are held for 15 minutes after the beginning of the scheduled session after which it is cancelled and made available to students seeking walk-ins.

Students with three no-shows may be restricted from scheduling new appointments for the remainder of the semester.
