Hello! Let me introduce myself, I am Lisa D'Adamo-Weinstein, Director of Academic Support at the Northeast Center.
I created this website to give all Northeast Center students access to a wide range of academic support resources. I also want to make my work available to my colleagues, both inside and outside of Empire State College. By clicking on the links below, you will find information about me as well as information about the academic support services I provide and the materials I have designed to assist Empire State College students, staff, and faculty maximize students' academic success.

LEARNING STRENGTHS :The key to academic success is knowing what you know, knowing what you need to know, and knowing how to best learn what you need to know. Your learning style is the way you prefer to learn. It doesn't have anything to do with how intelligent you are or what skills you have learned. It has to do
LEARNING STYLES AND ACTIVE STUDYING
with how your brain works most efficiently to learn new information. This workshop will focus on helping you identify your own learning style and show you how to develop learning strategies that work for you so you can create a customized approach to achieving academic success.
