Learning Support

There are many ways for you to find extra help with a course if you need assistance. Faculty are always willing to discuss questions you might have about their classes during their office hours, and many run review sessions or provide helpful materials or practice quizzes on their course websites. Each department maintains lists of tutors for courses, and student groups in engineering offer individual tutoring sessions. Engineering students frequently participate in student groups for the calculus, chemistry, and physics courses they take during the first two years. Penn State Learning offers tutoring to all Penn State undergraduates in mathematics, writing, and foreign languages.
