One of our favorite outside sources we recommend to students for all writing help is Purdue University’s Online Writing Lab. It provides concise information related to all things writing, including sentence structure, grammar and punctuation, MLA and APA citation styles, and much more.

Resources for Q courses

For Engineering students at Avery Point, the Vergnano Institute for Inclusion (VII) Homeroom is a combination of peer tutoring, mentoring, coaching, and a support system. The motto is “nothing is a dumb question, so ask anything.” Most students participate in person and virtually by seeking tutoring, but students may also ask about what classes to take, clubs to join, or scholarships to apply for.

One of our favorite outside sources we recommend to students for Science and Math help is Khan Academy. It provides lessons and practice for many different subjects, from algebra and calculus to statistics and chemistry, and much more. We have also linked a number of useful, free to use online tools:
