Embedded Tutoring (ET) and Supplemental In-Class Support (SIS) study sessions

Embedded tutors are members of your class who prepare study aids after each class. The study aids help summarize that day's lecture and are optimized fo different learning styles. Check with your Embedded Tutor for days, times, and location of your assigned class.

Writing Skills Tutoring

The Learning Center works on the premise that writers develop over the entire human lifespan, and all writers, from beginners to practiced professionals, can benefit from conversation with and advice from other writers. We can help anyone in the college community who is interested in becoming a more skillful and confident writer. 

The Center is staffed by experienced writing tutors. Our writing tutors can help you with any kind of written assignment. We can also help our ESOL students tackle their writing work.
