Mission

The Pathways Academic Assistance Center's (PAAC) mission is to help students become successful and confident academically by:

  • modeling the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) Socratic Tutorial strategies by providing the tools and resources necessary to assume responsibility for their own learning  
  • asking higher-level questions to gain deeper understanding of their rigorous content through critical thinking and inquiry process
  • utilizing Cornell note-taking as a method for mastering information, stressing Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading (WICOR)

Our tutors understand that students encounter the learning process with different degrees of strength and comfort; therefore, a collaborative approach guides our practice.  Tutors and students engage in one-on-one and/or peer conversations about the subject area while sharing knowledge and granting authority to both the tutor and student.  We recognize that differences in proficiency, linguistic and cultural background need to be taken into consideration when helping students to become efficient learners.
