Services for Summer 2021

The Learning Center will be open for student use during summer term! Visit us to work with a tutor in the Open Lab, use our computers and printer, or find a quiet study place. We are open Monday through Friday from 1:00 - 4:00 PM. 

The Learning Center's remote tutoring services are still available for students. For more information about remote tutoring services, please read below. 

Tutoring Services

The Learning Center provides tutoring for both Academic English program students and students enrolled in Pathway Undergraduate and Graduate programs. Please note that Learning Center tutors support students by helping them identify and use strategies and tools to improve on their own. This is not an editing service. 

Open Lab Tutoring

The Open Lab is a drop-in tutoring service, which means you don't need an appointment! Meet with a tutor in-person to help you improve your assignments and projects from your language classes. To prepare for tutoring, please bring any materials you may need such as a textbook, grading rubric, or your instructor's feedback. The Open Lab is open Monday - Friday from 1:00 - 4:00 PM in ILLC 140, right across from the coffee shop. 

Online Appointment Tutoring 

The Learning Center is now offering online tutoring appointments through Zoom! Meet one-on-one with a tutor for support with your language assignments or skills. Online appointments are available all day Monday through Friday. Appointments are 45 minutes long and students can make up to three appointments per week. For information on how to join your tutoring appointment, please visit the Learning Center Canvas page.
