Asking for help is the number one life skill

It’s ok to have a challenge as long as you hang in there and seek help says UC Academic Skills Centre Learning Advisor Jacqui Tither.

“Help seeking is the number 1 skill in life. It’s not about being needy, it’s about needing help at times.

At the Academic Skills Centre our goal is to upskill you so you become independent.

People can be too scared to look at a problem. We just give them the courage to look and plan and move out of avoiding the problem.

I love helping people because I know what a difference it makes. I have a lot of empathy for people who feel like they’re struggling. You’re not born with skills. Some people can transition in to study really easily, but some people need to learn what an academic essay looks like. It’s just that people come from such varied backgrounds.”
