  • Alex Israel

    Feb 10| Lectures
    More
    The work of Alex Israel is deeply entwined with his hometown of Los Angeles. The artist creates art that riffs on Hollywood culture and the cult of celebrity. His first major body of work consisted of rented studio props, transformed into readymades by their placement in the gallery—some blatantly obvious in their artificiality. He gave celebrities the same treatment in the video series “As It Lays”, video portraits based on campy TV talk shows.

Academic Support Guidelines

Academic Support in the SRC is to assist you in improving your learning outcome. Tutorial can be an excellent resource for reinforcing ideas, expanding knowledge, and brainstorming. It is important to remember that what you put into your time at the SRC is what you get out of it. Below are some guidelines to aid in maximizing your Academic Support time at the SRC.

  • Academic Support is held in either 30 minutes or one hour sessions.
  • Tutors may see students on a walk in basis, subject to availability. However, we encourage you to make a standing appointment.
  • Please log in and out each time you use Academic Support. This process helps the SRC better serve the Otis community in terms of hours and number of tutors available.
  • Please remember that when you sign up for tutoring you are making a commitment to use this service.
  • Students who fail to appear at three of their scheduled appointments, without notification, will be limited to the use of Academic Support on a walk-in basis only.
  • Be on time for your appointments. If you will be late for an appointment, or need to cancel, please notify the SRC at (424) 207-2492.
  • Be prepared for your appointment. Students should come to tutoring on time and bring with them their course syllabus, textbooks, and the assignment on which they are working.
  • If you are five minutes late, for a thirty minutes session, your appointment will be given away to a student on the wait list.
  • If you are ten minutes late, for an hour long session, your appointment will be given away to a student on the wait list.
  • Tutors will make every effort to begin and end scheduled appointments on time, but in some cases appointments may run over. Please be patient.
  • Remember, peer-tutors do not know all the answers; however, they can assist you in formulating questions to ask the instructor for clarification.
  • Tutors will not write your paper for you, nor can they talk to the professor for you.
  • If your paper is due in 2 hours or less, tutors will not “quickly read through” your paper.
  • If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the service provided by a tutor, contact Carol D. Branch, Ph.D., Director, Student Resources Center at ananse@otis.edu or (310) 846-2554.

 

Online Tutoring Service: Sunday 1:00 pm – Friday noon
