The Learning Center

TLC

Manitowoc

Tutoring services are available to students through the campus Learning Center.  The Learning Center is located in the front of the campus library (which is room F118 in Founders Hall).

The Learning Center is a place for help and growth. We are devoted to working with both strong students and students engaging with material they find challenging. 

This year, the Learning Center will tutor writing in way that is distinct from the way we tutor other subjects.  Here is how the two approaches will differ:

Math, Science, and Other Subjects

Students will meet with peer tutors in one-on-one meetings that are typically arranged on a drop-in basis.  However, if a student wishes to schedule a meeting in advance, that can also be arranged at the tutor’s discretion. 

Peer tutors will typically be available during our core hours of operation, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm.

For more information or to set up an appointment with a peer tutor, see Jared Koch, the Learning Center Coordinator.  His office is located in F111 (which is located inside the library).  He can also be reached via email at kochja@uwgb.edu or office phone at 920-663-7328. 

Writing

Students who would like to work on their writing will be able to seek either online or in-person tutoring:

  • In-Person – In-person tutoring will be provided by Ben Strieter, a member of the instructional staff.  He will be available for three hours per week (on Tuesday from 8:30-10:30 and Wednesday from 9:00-10:00).  During those hours, he will be in the campus library.   Students can drop in for help, or they can also sign up for meetings in advance.  For more information, students should email Ben Strieter directly at strieteb@uwgb.edu, stop by the library during his scheduled hours, or drop by his office (H148) during other times of the week.
  • Online – Online tutoring will be administered by Brainfuse, an online tutoring service that provides students with written feedback on their writing.  Students who use Brainfuse will submit a draft of their work online, wait about 24 hours, and then receive written feedback from the professional tutors at Brainfuse.
