Overview and Objectives

The USSC Learning Centers consist of four centers: Gaither Learning Center, Math Center (Jackson Davis), Science Tutorial Center, and the Writing Resource Center. We provide academic support in various subject areas at no cost to students. We offer subject-specific one-on-one tutorial sessions as well as group study sessions. Working closely with department heads and professorial faculty allows the center coordinators to train tutors to tailor sessions to lesson plans and syllabi. Find out how to schedule a 1-on-1 session with a tutor here.  

The USSC Learning Centers seek to:

  • Provide services such as tutorials sessions, group study sessions, and workshops that will increase students' chances of academic success.
  • Offer tutorial sessions that teach students the skills they need to become effective, independent, life-long learners.
  • Employ strategies that will result in an increasingly positive correlation between student service utilization and their grade in the respective classes.
  • Supply student tutors with professional development opportunities that will bolster their academic and professional success.
  • Solidify relationships with campus partners by providing support services to the students in their areas.
  • Launch marketing campaigns to attract students to the centers and other academic services.
