Tutors and the Learning Center
The Student Access Center works very closely with the Learning Center to ensure that our students are getting all the extra help they need. Please visit https://www.champlainlearningcenter.com/ to get more information.
The Learning Center
Located on the second floor of the library in B-309, the Learning Center aims to enhance and support the educational programs of Champlain College Saint-Lambert by providing free access to peer tutoring and computers.
Students visit the Learning Center to study with a tutor, to work on a computer, or to request help with course work and study skills. Peer tutors are available in just about every subject. Learning Center tutors are experienced students who take a course called "To Teach Is to Learn" which focuses on tutoring skills and techniques. All requests for help are carefully evaluated. If a tutor is not currently available for ongoing help, students will be referred to other resources, including drop-in tutoring in the Writing, Math and Science Centers. Computers are accessible for student use during library hours.
If you have any questions, feel free to drop by and talk with Doreen Kelly. She can advise you as to which resources best suit your needs.
The Writing Center
The Writing Center is located in B307 on the second floor of the library. It is open from Monday to Friday with peer tutors available on an hourly basis between the hours of 8:00 to 16:30. The goal of the Center is to help all Champlain students to become confident writers. The tutors are experienced writers who are trained to help with almost all of your written assignments in English. They can guide you as you work on essay writing, understanding textbooks, presenting orals, or researching projects. You are welcome to drop in and visit the Center at any time. Often there is a tutor available to help you on the spot, although if you want to reserve a time, you need to select an hour in the schedule book which is located at the door of the Center, at B307. For great results, sign up as soon as you know the deadline for your essay. Come prepared with your notes and ideas and we will help you to excell.
