Services for Fall 2022

Welcome to the Learning Center! Visit us to work with a tutor in the Open Lab, use our computers and printers, or find a space to study. We are open Monday to Thursday from 8 AM - 7:00 PM, and Fridays from 8 AM to 5 PM.

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 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM in ILLC 140, right across from the coffee shop.

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. You are not able to book an appointment more than 5 days in advance. This is not an editing service.
