Services for Fall 2020

The Learning Center will be open for student use during fall term! Visit us to work in our computer lab, find a quiet study place, or print any assignments or materials for your classes. We are open Monday through Friday from 12:00 - 4:00 PM. 

All of the Learning Center's tutoring services will continue to be remote for fall term. 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. 

 

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.
