Group Review Sessions

A few classes have group review sessions which take place every week.  Students do not need to sign up for these review sessions, just show up at the appropriate time and location.  To maximize the effectiveness of these meetings, students should read the assigned text materials, attempt homework assignments, and bring specific questions they wish to discuss.

Learning Center Workshops

The Learning Center offers a variety of workshops designed to enhance the academic experience of Penn State Lehigh Valley students including time management, note-taking skills, active reading strategies, and online tutoring. Workshops may be scheduled as part of a class or to a club group. If interested in having a Learning Center representative present a workshop to your students, please contact the Learning Center.

Drop-In Tutoring

Tutoring assistance in select subjects is available without an appointment Monday through Friday during Learning Center Hours. Drop-in tutoring is best for the student who has a small number of quick questions, as tutors will divide their time among all of the students seeking help during drop-in hours. Contact the Learning Center for details about which subjects are covered during drop-in tutoring hours.

Tutoring by Appointment

Tutoring in select subjects is also available by scheduling an appointment. This approach is best for the student who anticipated the need for ongoing support in order to keep up or stay ahead of their math classes. To do this, students must fill out and submit a tutor request form to the Learning Center and a one-on-one tutor will be assigned to the student. Appointments will be schedule at a time that the student and tutor agree upon. All appointments will take place on campus. Contact the Learning Center for details regarding which courses offer one-on-one tutoring options.

Requesting a tutor is a commitment. Students are expected to meet with their tutor, as a minimum, for an hour on a weekly basis for the remainder of the semester.
