The transition into University life is filled with demands, sacrifices and changes. Grenfell Campus' Learning Centre recognizes the difficulties faced by students in university. In response, the Learning Centre provides students at Grenfell Campus with a variety of services and programs, specifically in the areas of academic support, vocational and personal development. These include:
- Instructional Assistance
Two instructional assistants are available on a full time basis at the Centre. The Numeracy Instructional Assistant provides extra help for students who are having problems in Mathematics. The Literacy Instructional Assistant aids students with Essay Construction, Writing, Grammar and Literacy Skills. Appointments may be arranged by dropping into the Centre. Referrals are not necessary.
- Supplemental Instruction
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a program in which student leaders direct group study sessions for targeted courses. SI improves understanding of course material and helps develop good study skills and strategies for studying the course. SI leaders are students who have already successfully completed the targeted courses. They attend all classes and run SI sessions based on material from class.
- Peer Tutors
Peer Tutors are available in most academic courses in the Learning Centre. Students are matched with a tutor who will work one-to-one, FREE OF CHARGE, on problem areas. Students can arrange for tutoring services by contacting the Learning Centre Coordinator. The Peer Tutor Room is located in AS 384.
