The meaning of the word tutorial in British academic parlance is a small class of one, or only a few students in which the tutor (a professor or other academic staff members) gives individual attention to the students. It is also known as supervision or refers to something more like an American discussion section that is supplemental to a large lecture course, which gives students opportunity to discuss the lectures where in they meet regularly with a guidance of the tutor. The objective of this study is to determine the efficacy of the Academic Assistance for Students in Mathematics and English in improving the academic performance of the students in College Algebra. Students who were identified to have difficulties in mathematics through the diagnostic test in mathematics and the entrance examination given by the guidance center, were subjected to attend the AASEM Program but due to some conflicts other students failed to attend the said program.
