ASAP changed its name to The Learning Center, effective June 15, 2019.
The Learning Center provides a variety of opportunities for students to discover their learning preferences and build successful academic behaviors. Students who regularly use our services tend to show increased academic confidence, stronger learning skills, and improvement in their coursework.
Professional tutoring is individualized, skill-based sessions in reading, study strategies, math, time management and writing.
Nightowl offers real-time, online after-hours help for undergrad-level writing, math, chemistry, biology, physics, psychology and accounting.
PLTL is peer-led collaboration to practice solving chemistry problems for General Chemistry 1 and 2.
Peer Tutoring is a one-to-one session model focusing on how best to study for and think about content.
Supplemental Instruction is peer-led collaborative groups integrating how to learn with what to learn.
When the campus cancels classes due to inclement weather, The Learning Center and its programs (Professional Tutoring, Supplemental Instruction (SI), Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL), and Peer Tutoring) will also be cancelled. SUNY Cortland announces these cancellations on the campus homepage and via email. Generally, our online tutoring service will continue to operate during inclement weather. For questions about online tutoring, please e-mail Amy Russell.
Professional tutors, who are learning specialists, coordinate and supervise all peer-led programs.
SUNY Cortland students can access free Read&Write software to support reading and writing skills.
