Welcome to the Learning Center!




The Learning Center at Purchase College assists students in learning, developing academic skills, and attaining academic success. The Center offers a comprehensive system of support, ranging from help in a specific course to detailed instruction in writing and study skills. The primary modes of support are peer-based individual and group tutoring.

All tutors are carefully chosen and excel in their specialization. During the Fall and Spring semesters, tutoring is offered in a wide variety of subjects including writing, languages, lower level math courses, and various Humanities disciplines.   Please note that Natural Sciences tutoring is available in the Einstein Corner (located in the Natural Sciences Building).  

During the summer, tutoring is available in writing, study skills, time management, and math on a by appointment basis.  To schedule an appointment, call 914-251-3997 or send an e-mail to learning@purchase.edu.


In addition, a new online pilot of online tutoring is available for summer courses via Net Tutor.
