Academic Resource Center

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) at Harvard University exists to support the academic mission of Harvard College and the GSAS by ensuring every student has full access to the transformative power of a liberal arts and sciences education. The ARC is committed to empowering students to reach their full academic potential in an inclusive and equitable academic environment. Using evidence-based methods and drawing on recent research in learning assistance, the ARC supports Harvard’s students in developing reading strategies, time management skills, and metacognitive approaches to learning. Students will have access to consultations, workshops, academic coaching, peer tutoring, and skills-based resources.

Office of Career Services

The Office of Career Services is dedicated to educating, advising, and connecting students to opportunities for summer and post-graduation in order to foster their intellectual, social, and personal transformations.

Peer Tutoring

The ARC connects Harvard students with a network of trained peers who can support their learning. Peer Tutors can provide an extra layer of academic support for students by reviewing critical concepts and materials from class, clarifying points of confusion, and developing study strategies for upcoming exams. 

Writing Center

The Writing Center, part of the Harvard College Writing Program, is a place for Harvard undergraduates to get help with any aspect of their writing. Writing Center tutorials focus on writing issues like structure, clarity, argument, and citations. Our tutors can also help you identify recurring problems with grammar and syntax and help you solve those problems. We do not offer proofreading or copyediting services.

Math Question Center

The Math Question Center (MQC) is a community where students in Math M, 1a, 1b, 21a, and 21b come together to work on their problem sets (or PSets). The center is staffed by undergraduate course assistants (CAs) who are there to help you productively approach your PSets. The goal of the MQC is for you to not only complete your homework correctly, but also synthesize the main ideas from the PSets so you can apply them more broadly.
