Referring a Student to the Learning Center
The Learning Center at Purchase College offers free tutorial help for Purchase students throughout the academic year. Please refer students to the Learning Center to receive supplemental instruction and learn effective study skills. We would be glad to submit a report, upon request, of the information covered during a session. We look forward to working with you.
Recommending a Student to be a Tutor
We value your recommendations here at the Learning Center. We invite students to serve as interns during their first semester, so that they have the opportunity to study and practice Learning Center pedagogy. Please submit the names of any students that you feel could perform tutorial services for your class. If you would like to hear more about what tutors do, feel free to request an office or class visit at any time.
Class Visits and Workshops
A Learning Center staff member will happily lead a 15 - 30 minute class presentation on an aspect of the writing process, study skills, time management, or Learning Center services. We will work with you to tailor a presentation to your particular class, or to assist you in planning your own session.
Please complete the Workshop Request Form (below) at least one week in advance of your in-class workshop. Meeting with a Learning Center staff member at least one week before the workshop to discuss your students’ needs is beneficial but not required. We look forward to helping your students become more effective learners.
