Tutoring and Learning Center

Welcome to the Pacific University Tutoring and Learning Center, or TLC. We offer student-to-student tutoring for undergraduates in the College of Arts & Sciences. Student tutors are screened and approved by faculty members in their areas of expertise and are available on a drop-in basis.

The center features two Macs and two PCs available for student use, as well as lots of comfortable chairs and tables for quiet study. Our space also is available for study groups and additional tutoring sessions.


Tutors are available in:

  • Chemistry (general and organic)
  • Mathematics (through calculus)
  • Physics
  • Statistics (math, not social science)
  • Writing

Faculty members also are invited to let us know about tutoring opportunities in their departments, so we can make information available to students.


Writing tutors are available from noon to 3 p.m. Sundays and from 7 to 10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday.

Math and science tutors are available from 7 to 10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday. No tutoring is scheduled Friday and Saturday.

One-on-one tutoring is available by appointment. Call for details.
