The Learning Center provides free academic support services for ALL Eureka College students. The Center has two support services - The Writing Center and The Math Lab. Both areas provide tutoring, advice, and individualized guidance.
THE WRITING CENTER
The Writing Center provides feedback at any stage of the writing process—brainstorming, composing, revising, editing, and proofreading. Students can receive peer assistance for course related assignments, as well as personal writing projects. Student tutors, who have an English background and are trained by an English professor, guide students to writing success. It is important for students to realize that tutors will guidestudents, not write or rewrite assignments for them. Also, the best results occur when students don't make a last moment stop, but rather visit early and/or frequently, so quality writing and revision emerges. Student tutors will be located at the Burgoo, Learning Center, and Melick Library during specified times.
THE MATH LAB
The Math Lab will have a new format this year. An Education/Math Professor and a student tutor will provide one-on-one assistance for Math 098 and 099 courses. Both are available for assistance during requested times and locations. However, if tutoring is needed for higher level math courses, then tutors will be sought out for specific student requests. Please contact the Director of the Learning Center at 467-6520 for these specific needs.
In addition to these support services, course tutors and study groups can be arranged in most subject areas. Simply contact the Center to set up an individualized appointment. Also, the Center can provide individual consultation on specific academic struggles. Assistance can be given on time and stress management, study skills, and course specific concerns.
