The Learning Center offers in-person peer tutoring in 159 Franco Building.
Summer tutoring is not offered through the Learning Center at Penn State Berks. As a reminder, summer classes are accelerated and condensed; please register for classes knowing that you will need to use faculty office hours for additional academic support.
We encourage all students to take responsibility when creating course schedules each semester.

What if the Learning Center does not offer tutoring for the class that I need?
If the Learning Center doesn't offer tutoring services for the course in which you need support, see your instructor before or after class or during their office hours for additional assistance. You are also encouraged to form a study group with others in your class.
Sometimes, however, your struggle may not be content related, but with one or more of the following issues:

- Note taking
- Test anxiety
