LEARNING CENTER

Our Mission

The Lakeland Learning Center is committed to providing equitable and quality academic support services to help students strengthen the skills and mindsets necessary to improve learning and promote academic independence as they work to achieve their educational goals.

Fall 2020 Announcement

Fall semester tutoring services will be remote. With COVID-19 protocols still in place, the learning center team will continue to provide virtual tutoring and academic learning support services for students using the Webex platform.

Remote services are convenient and available:
Monday – Thursday | 9 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Friday | 9 a.m. - Noon.

Tutoring

FREE tutoring is offered by professional tutors and well-trained and faculty recommended peer tutors. Students have the ability to schedule appointments one week at a time, when they need it rather than committing to a semester long tutoring session. Subjects include: Accounting, biology, business, chemistry, computers, English, logic, math, music, nursing, psychology, physics, college writing, study skills and more. Click here to view available tutoring hours.

How to Make an Appointment

The steps to make an online appointment are the same as when you make an in-person appointment. Log in to myLakeland, click the Student Tab, click Schedule It, click Schedule a Tutoring, Writing Center or Academic Study Skills Coaching Session and follow the prompts!

When you make an appointment to meet with a tutor or student success navigator online, you'll receive an email confirmation in your student email account with a link to join the meeting. We encourage you to give it a try!

If you have a question or problem scheduling an appointment with either a tutor or student success navigator, please call us at 440.525.7019. If we don't answer, please leave a message with your name and phone number and we will call as soon as possible.

Student Success Navigators

Our team of student success navigators and our remote learning concierge are available to guide students through learning center and college-wide programs to ensure success. Schedule an appointment in myLakeland ScheduleIt, and learn more about us here.

Writing Center

Students collaborate with consultants to improve their ability to communicate their ideas in writing – all types of writing and all subjects. Students do not drop off their papers to be proofread, but work with the consultant to improve their writing skills and learn from their mistakes. Click here to view hours of operation.

Math in Minutes

Math-in-minutes looks a little different this year as it has gone virtual. Peer math tutors are available for 30-minute appointments to provide one-on-one help for math assignments and concepts. Click here to view hours of operation.
