Engineering is tough. Everyone knows that, but thankfully SMU has the perfect resource to help you through any class. The ALEC
Put it simply, the ALEC is the one stop shop to get free tutoring in any subject you are having trouble with. All of the tutors have already taken the classes you are struggling with, and you can be sure they know what they are talking about because they all got A's in the class. The best part is that it is completely free.
Every time I had trouble with a test or quiz in Calculus I would go to the ALEC for help. The tutors are always well prepared and willing to help.
My personal favorite part about the ALEC, however, is the writing center. For many engineers math and science come easy, but writing may be a whole other story on its own. At the writing center you can sign up for a thirty minute block with an actual English professor. All you have to do is hand them your paper and they will walk you step by step how to make it better.
