The Learning Center has the following resources:
Professional-level tutoring in Mathematics (including all core Statistics courses), Reading, and Study Skills.
Coordinators offer a number of in-class workshops tailored to your needs.
Specialized workshops to assist students who are preparing for the CLAST.
The ULC is equipped with computer tutorials that allow students to practice their skills in a number of areas including mathematics, statistics, and speed reading. For students taking the CLAST test, we offer a practice test as well as tutorials. Our website also has great resources for students.
Simply send the student to our office. It is always beneficial for students to know what skills need to be improved. A referral form is available on-line for this purpose.
Generally, students who are diagnosed with a disability are already registered with the Office of Disabilities on campus. The Office of Disabilities works closely with students to determine how best to assist them in their educational needs. Coordinators and tutors in our ULC have often worked closely with the Office of Disabilities to provide tutoring to students with special needs.
The ULC has a computerized tracking program indicating the date, time, and duration of the student's stay. You can request that information from the student or by contacting the ULC.
All ULC tutors must have expertise in their subject-area, pass all sections of the CLAST exam, and be recommended by a faculty member to work at the ULC. Additionally, tutors engage in continuous training in pedagogy, subject-area skills, and ULC procedures and policies. In fact, many of our tutors are graduate students and adjuncts with years of teaching experience.
If you know a student who is interested in becoming a tutor please feel free to refer him/her to our office.
The vast majority of our services are free; however, certain CLAST specialized workshops may require a minimal fee when it is taught outside of the ULC and by instructors as opposed to tutors.
A faculty brochure that highlights all of the Center's services is available on-line. A hard copy of the brochure is available upon request. Click here for Brochure.
The easiest way is to direct them to our website or ask them to stop by our office. Of course, we are always willing to stop by your classroom to do a five minute presentation about our services. We are always encouraged when instructors invite us into their classrooms.
