 . . . with our professional and certified peer tutoring services. We provide several tutoring options to Penn State Harrisburg students. Tutoring options include writing, academic skills consulting, speeches, American and academic literacy, and many math, science, and business courses.


The professional writing tutors help students at any point in the writing process with objective feedback on any project, with suggestions for more effective and efficient methods of writing. We also help with MLA, APA, or Chicago Style documentation styles. Professional correspondence is also supported, including graduate school applications, scholarship/grant essays, and job packets.

The Academic Skills Consultants work with students to build individual study plans and find the best study strategies to use for each individual. Students who participate in these appointments are able to gain time management skills, test-taking strategies, and organizational skills. Students have the chance to have a better understanding about how they learn so that they can reduce the amount of time necessary to study and ultimately become more successful in their studies in general.

The American and Academic Literacy (AAL) program offers multilingual and international students the opportunity to have conversations about their transition to America and into the American academic environment. In the AAL appointments, students participate in one-on-one discussions about feedback from professors and about strategies for participating more actively in class discussions. Students have the opportunity to see, borrow, and use technology like the SmartPen and Kurzweil reading software in the AAL appointments. All students, regardless of whether they are domestic or international, get speech and presentation assistance with this service.

Math, science, and statistics courses such as MATH 017, MATH 021, MATH 022, MATH 026, MATH 110, MATH 140, MATH 141, CHEM 101, CHEM 110, PHYS 150, PHYS 151, PHYS 211 sequence, and STAT 200 are supported by professional tutoring and peer tutoring with drop-in clinics and appointments. For other courses, if possible, we recruit and train peer tutors for specific subject areas as requested.

The Learning Center is located on the second floor of the Student Enrichment Center, or SEC, in suite 201. We are open 8 am - 8 pm Mondays - Thursdays and 8 am - 5 pm on Fridays. The office can be reached at (717) 948-6475. For your convenience, we also offer online appointments!

Students are limited to two hours per course, per week of scheduled tutoring for Writing, Academic Skills Consulting, and AAL. Students are limited to three hours per course for math, science, and business courses.

If you need to cancel your scheduled appointment, you must do so at least 2 hours before your appointment to avoid it being counted as missed.
