LearnAbility Sessions

Are you studying a lot and still not getting the grade you want? 

  • Earning the grade you want includes understanding how you learn, reading for comprehension and retention, taking functional lecture notes, using time effectively and taking tests well. Moreover, different courses require different strategies and skills. The more you understand about the courses you're taking and their requirements, the better equipped you are to succeed.
  • LearnAbility sessions are workshops designed to assist students with adjusting to the college academic environment. This environment often means studying with different approaches to fit a particular course. The more you understand which study strategies work best for you and is best suited for the course, the more likely you are to achieve at desired levels.
  • To schedule a LearnAbility session or for more information email us at learning@hawaii.edu.
