Learn Better at the Learning Commons

Tutoring is like having a personal coach for your academics. It’s all about helping you figure out how to learn better. When you go for tutoring, you’re more likely to do well in your classes. And if you have a good experience with tutoring, it might start a lifelong journey of discovering new things and really understanding them.

The Learning Commons provides multiple services aimed to enhance the quality of student learning experiences.

“Students who come to the Learning Commons,” Lee Delaino, Learning Commons Director said, “are encouraged to learn strategies for studying that they may not have been taught before. We expect that everyone can add new study skills to their toolbox for academic success.”

The Northwest Campus, the Blount Center and all center locations offer tutoring. Students can also meet with SF tutors online if coming in person isn’t possible. Online tutoring assistance is available via the Learning Commons Canvas page.
