Digital communications students work diligently in the Center for Writing & Tutoring

Finding Your Success

Are you struggling with a paper or looking to improve your writing skills? We're here to help!

In just a few short years, the Center for Academic Success has become a positive force on the Lebanon Valley College campus. We are about people helping people. We listen, attempt to define the problem, and aid in facilitating a possible solution, thus diminishing the client's anxiety without diminishing the client's independence in either the learning or writing process.

The mission of the Lebanon Valley College Center for Academic Success is to provide our clients with the tools, techniques, and confidence necessary to become successful communicators and writers. We do this by creating a comfortable environment in which clients and tutors work together at improving writing and thinking across the curriculum.

Request a Writing Tutor

Do you want higher grades or to improve your study skills? Peer Tutoring may be just the answer.

Peer Tutoring offers free assistance to students who want to improve their academic performance. Tutors can be provided for most 100- and 200-level courses offered. Peer Tutors are successful, upper-level students who are trained to help students clarify assignments, understand the subject matter, prepare homework, review homework, prepare for exams, review exams, improve study techniques, and improve time management. 

Tutors are available for individual and group sessions. They will contact students within 48-72 hours and arrange a time and place to meet. Please keep in mind that tutors are students themselves, and it is important to be flexible with appointments if you are looking to receive help. Requests submitted on Saturday and Sunday will only receive attention on Monday!!! 

Please note that we do not provide tutoring to high school students.
