The Learning Centre: Study Skills


Students can meet with a peer tutor to assess and build study strategies for academic success. 

The Front Desk

Peer Tutors are available for walk-up questions about study skills and the learning technology needed for academic work, including Blackboard, email, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and other software necessary for you to complete work in your classes. 

Tutors are normally available at the Front Desk at both New Westminster and Coquitlam during our open hours. 

Consultation Appointments

Tutors will meet with one-on-one to help you learn new strategies for academic success, such as memorization, organizing oral presentations, exam taking strategies and improved lecture note-taking. 

Book an appointment and choose "Consultation" from the 'Get help with..." drop-down menu to speak to a tutor about your needs. 
 

Resources and Handouts

Handouts with study tips and strategies are available on online and in the Learning Centre. Make a Consultation appointment (see above) to review the handout or ask a tutor to share other resources. 

Learning Plans for Study Skills

Students wanting ongoing appointments with academic skills can choose to meet with a tutor for weekly sessions. The first appointment, called an Intake, will be scheduled with Learning Centre faculty or an experienced peer tutor. During this appointment, you will be asked questions about your needs and the skills you already bring with you. This information will be used to create a Learning Plan for you to work on weekly with a peer tutor.
