What to Expect at the LRC

Get the academic support you need to be successful in your classes.

What is the Learning Resource Center (LRC)?

The Learning Resource Center (LRC) in Kruegel 106 helps students with English and supports university coursework taught by WSU faculty. The Center is a resource to both students and to faculty to support academic success.

Why Should I Go to Tutoring?

In American academic culture, tutoring is an expected, normal part of studying at a university. Our tutors want to help you achieve academic success by guiding you through assignments and providing you with valuable resources and materials you may use for future independent study. Visiting the LRC is an important part of the success of every INTO WSU student and a critical part of your success at WSU.

What Help Can Tutors Give Me?

Tutors can help you with any area of English: listening, speaking, reading, writing, pronunciation, and grammar. They can also assist you with research skills, the WSU library website, formatting assignments in Word, practicing presentations, and with other academic questions you may have.

What Can I Do at the LRC?

At the LRC,  you can:

  • Work with a tutor 1-on-1
  • Work in a group with guidance from a tutor
  • Study independently or with guidance from a tutor
  • Attend workshops on Career Preparedness
  • Use our desks and computers to complete assignments
  • Read and use texts from our library of textbooks, fiction, non-fiction, and magazines

Do I Need to Make an Appointment?

You do not need to make an appointment to see a tutor. Just stop by when we are open.
