The Elmhurst College Learning Center is an academic unit providing a variety of services to Elmhurst College students. The philosophy of the Center is "learning how to learn." In other words, activities are designed to help each student succeed as an independent learner.
Students can receive one-on-one tutoring in math, reading, writing, and study skills areas. Workshops are also offered. Of particular interest are those workshops which help students in their preparation for the Illinois Test of Basic Skills for potential teachers and for the Graduate Record Exam for those students continuing in higher education after graduation from Elmhurst College.
Types of Resources
The Learning Center has resources in print, video cassette, audio cassette, and computer software. Students planning to enter graduate school have found the GRE preparation software to be especially helpful. Most materials can be checked out by students for personal use.
