A tutor or coach is a UNI student who has received training and national certification through the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). They can help you in several areas (business, math, science, writing, general study skills, etc) and are available to help you Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 10 pm. Who does The Learning Center serve? Services are offered to currently-enrolled UNI students. How much does it cost to use The Learning Center @ Rod Library? Services are free to currently enrolled students. What are The Learning Center’s hours? Business, math/stats, science, and writing tutors are available Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 10 pm.

Things you should consider bringing include: Class Notes Syllabus Textbook Handouts Assignment Outline/Rubric Rough Drafts Calculator Do you have appointments? No, all students are welcome to walk-in for help Monday through Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Students might not be able to work with a tutor exclusively one-on-one, but our tutors are trained to work with multiple students at once and will give you the attention you deserve/need. Will the tutors/coaches do the homework for me? No. We are a learning center providing you an instructional service. We empower you to become an independent learner by clarifying concepts, modeling the problem-solving process, checking your understanding, helping you to connect the smaller ideas to get the bigger concepts, and incorporating study skills. What if I’m a distance learner and can’t come to campus? We recommend that you take advantage of our online tutoring services provided by Smarthinking. Visit https://tlc.uni.edu/online for services.

Peer mentors are attached to First-Year-Only (FYO) courses who are there to help support you during the transition to college. Peer mentors share their experiences as UNI students, work with faculty members to facilitate class activities, help you get connected with campus organizations, and provide academic assistance to help support your success during your first year on campus. They hold regular office hours at The Learning Center @ Rod Library.
