Mission Statement

Stronger learning together.

The Meredith College Learning Center provides free peer-tutoring services that empower students to become more confident and capable learners. The Center offers tutoring in subjects such as foreign languages, mathematics, science, writing for all content areas, and more; its services include both one-on-one appointments and group sessions, offering a variety of learning dynamics. Each tutor is not only an experienced and successful student but also has been specifically trained to accommodate individual learning styles and needs.

While our sessions are focused on helping students learn how to succeed academically, the Center’s primary goal is to encourage students to take charge of their own learning experience by offering collaborative and encouraging peer tutoring that cultivates independence, curiosity, efficiency, strength, and self-confidence.

Appointment Policies

Each semester, the Learning Center offers subject-specific tutoring for 100- and 200-level courses. Writing tutors are available to work with students needing assistance with writing papers for any course, regardless of level.

Appointment Length

Appointments for all subjects are to be scheduled for thirty minutes. Students are allowed to visit the Learning Center for up to one hour (two sessions) per day per subject and up to two hours (four sessions) a week per subject. Unless students receive extended time accommodations, sessions may not be scheduled back-to-back. 

Online Appointments

Online appointments are available during open hours and follow the same guidelines and procedures as face-to-face appointments. Students may request a video of online sessions for their own personal, academic use only. No student may post any video recording of a session in whole or in part, nor may she distribute the video recording in any way. Screen casts or screen shots of the session remain the property of the Meredith College Learning Center. Students who do not follow these guidelines may have their Learning Center privileges revoked and may be referred to the Dean of Students' Office. 

Drop-In Appointments

Students wishing to drop-in "online," should use the chat feature available on the home page or email us at

Canceling an Appointment

Visit the Learning Center's appointment page to cancel an appointment or email us at


An appointment missed without 24 hours cancelation notice is considered a no show.

Because conflicts may arise at the last minute, two no shows are allowed per semester without penalty. Three no shows will revoke a student's sign up privileges for the remainder of the semester. Students with three no shows may still receive assistance on a walk-in basis.

*Students with disabilities or non-native speakers of English who have documented accommodations for extra time may sign up for 60 minute appointments for all subjects. Students with disabilities must turn in disability letters to Disability Services before they may sign up for extra time. Disability letters are reissued each semester and do not carry over from the previous semester. Non-native speakers must meet with the directors before signing up for extra time.

Any student who signs up for a one-hour appointment and does not meet the above qualifications will have her second 30-minute appointment canceled. The student may also be required to schedule a meeting with the Learning Center director before scheduling any future appointments.
