Success Tips

  • Schedule an appointment with your advisor regularly.
  • Attend your classes.
  • Keep up with your reading.
  • Bring the text that you are discussing to class.
  • Be an ACTIVE reader—read with a pen in your hand so you can underline and make notes in the margin.
  • Know how to use the library. The reference librarian for English and TESL is Tammy Voelker.  If you have problems with your research, do not hesitate to ask her for assistance. Her phone number is 330-672-3091, and her email address is tvoelker@kent.edu.  Her hours are 8-5 M-F.
