Tutoring and Learning Center at FinnU

The Tutoring and Learning Center offers ALL Finlandia students FREE tutoring for help in many General Education courses and some upper level courses.

The TLC also offers study skill workshops, study groups, computer literacy development, and the use of a small computer lab.

Peer tutors are recommended by faculty and selected through the work-study program. Professional tutors hold bachelor’s, master’s and/or doctoral degrees in their fields and have professional teaching and/or tutoring experience.
