The Learning Support Center, located on the 4th floor of the Ronald Williams Library, provides academic support for General Education courses, Math Development courses, and assistance with writing assignments for all disciplines. Reading and learning strategies are also supported.

Individualized academic support, coaching and tutoring for students.

Tutors are selected based on their academic success and knowledge of their discipline. They are juniors, seniors, graduate students, or professionals with majors in the field in which they tutor. All tutors receive ongoing training to ensure that successful tutoring techniques are employed and students are given an opportunity to be more academically engaged.

General education tutors work one-on-one with students, and they also schedule group review sessions prior to exams. To ensure that the tutor you need is free to meet with you, we encourage students to make appointments by calling 773-442-4568.
