Welcome to the Learning Center!

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 world 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.

Students may schedule an appointment or walk-in to receive tutoring. The Learning Center is located on the bottom floor of Carlyle Campbell Library.

Types of Appointments

Course Content: These appointments are class specific, meaning that the tutor has taken this class before and can assist you with homework review, concept reinforcement, study guides, test review, assignment clarification, and more. If you need assistance with any aspect of your course, you will generally choose this.

Public Speaking/Presentation Help: Offered for the first time last semester, these appointments are aimed at assisting you with speaking to groups. Our tutors can give you feedback on volume control, enunciation, tone, speed, organization/structure, and nonverbal communication. If you're concerned with how your presentation will go and wish to preview it with a knowledgeable, nonjudgemental tutor, please choose this!

Research Tutoring: A sub-group of tutors have been specially trained by the Library's research librarians to assist students with aspects of their research projects. From figuring out your research question, to navigating the various databases in search of materials, to the vetting of said sources, research tutors are here to help you!

Study Skills: These appointments are not class specific, meaning you can schedule this kind of appointment with any of our tutors! These appointments can vary from discussing time management tools, tips, and tricks, to having a tutor quiz you with your own study materials, to having assistance utilizing online studying software (ex. Quizlet), to the occasional body doubling. All of our tutors have developed their own studying style and are happy to offer whatever assistance they can to their peers!

Writing Tutoring: By far, one of our most popular types of appointments! All of our writing tutors have been trained to assist at any stage of the writing process. From brainstorming, to structural overhauls, to grammar and citation overviews, writing tutors are here to help you craft the best version of your essay or short-answer assignments. If you have a written assignment, don't hesitate to tap into our wealth of writing knowledge!
