C. Self-Efficacy No, I do not think Mr. Fowler is promoting self-efficacy with Sasha.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
