Learning Assistance provides academic support to Elon students in a variety of ways:
Learning Assistance offers students the choice of in-person or virtual by-appointment tutoring for most supported courses. Students have the option to schedule a 30-minute or 60-minute session for most courses. Tutoring sessions can be scheduled up to two weeks in advance and must be booked at least a day in advance.
Students do not need an appointment to attend a drop-in tutoring session. There is no limit to the number of students that attend a drop-in session and no limit to how long a student stays in the session within the scheduled timeframe. All drop-in tutoring sessions are held on the second floor of Belk Library.
Learning Strategies Tutoring
Learning Strategies Tutors can help students build skills applicable to any course including time management, organization, study strategies, note-taking, etc. Students can schedule a tutoring session with a Learning Strategies Tutor similar to scheduling a by-appointment session for any other subject using our online scheduler.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) provides students an opportunity to better understand course content outside of the traditional classroom setting. SI sessions are facilitated by a peer SI-Leader who has excelled in the course and currently attends the course. SI leaders create a lesson plan based on content covered in the course and hold weekly group sessions.
Accountability groups are a designated time and space for students to study or work on assignments while finding a group of like-minded peers who want to improve their study and learning habits. Students who express interest in joining an accountability group are assigned to a group based on their preferences. Students in an accountability group meet weekly with the same group of peers and group leader.
Student Success Consultation
Students who need academic support but aren’t sure where to start can schedule a consultation with a Learning Assistance staff member to discuss the many resources available through our office.
