Q:

Where can I get help if I am having trouble understanding the material in one of my accounting classes?

A:

Your first avenue should be to contact your instructor to request advice on how to best prepare for class. In addition, the Department of Accounting provides tutoring in the College of Business Tutoring Center (wweb.uta.edu/business/tutoring/index.php). Prior to visiting the lab you should become familiar with lab policies (pdf, 7k). Operating hours for the lab are posted in the Announcements section of this website. Finally, the University SOAR Office provides tutoring (supplemental instruction or SI) for a limited number of principles of accounting classes. Details may be obtained at the SOAR website and are also available in the Announcements section of this website.
