Tutoring and Learning Center

Welcome to the Pacific University Tutoring and Learning Center, or TLC. We are located in Scott Hall, Room 127. 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 is also available for study groups, independent study, and group meetings.


Tutors are available in:

  • Chemistry (general and organic)
  • Mathematics (through calculus)
  • Physics
  • Statistics (math, not social science)
  • Writing
  • Foreign Language
  • Digital Media
  • Economics (Wednesdays, 7 - 10 pm)

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


Tutors are available in ALL subjects Sundays through Thursdays from 7 to 10 p.m. Afternoon tutoring available in Writing, Math, and Chemistry on Sunday from 2 - 4 pm and Tuesday/Thursdays from 11:15 am - 12:30 pm.

No tutoring is scheduled Friday and Saturday.

Walk-in tutoring is preferred.
