ARC Beacon Program
What is Beacon?
It's ARC's award-winning peer-group tutoring program.
How does it work?
A trained tutor who has successfully completed a course works with a small group of students currently enrolled in the same course. The study group usually meets 2 hours a week outside of class. Students and tutor work together and learn from each other. As a student participating in the Beacon Program, you will automatically be enrolled in HSER 1000: supervised tutoring; a no fee, no grade, no credit class.
What's in it for me?
Students who participate in a Beacon study group...
- get better grades
- understand the subject better
- make new friends
- pay nothing--it's free!
- Earn extra credit (not offered in all Beacon courses-ask your instructor).
Ask your instructor if he or she has a Beacon study group for your class. Many instructors also offer incentives, often in the form of extra credit points, for those in a Beacon study group.
