Learning Support Services

Peer-to-Peer Tutoring

Subjects Tutored

Tutors are able to assist students in 1000 and 2000-level courses and some upper-level courses as demand necessitates. Services are for students enrolled in A-State.

All tutoring is by appointment only. Appointments must be made using the Penji app. Appointments should be made at least 24 hours in advance when possible. 

Visiting Learning Support Services

Please bring all the necessary "tools" for learning, including lecture notes, text notes, textbooks, and course syllabi. 

Students can maximize their time in tutoring by arriving prepared with specific questions. The best way to prepare for tutoring is by attempting homework questions in advance, reading textbook assignments, and reviewing lecture notes. Tutors can best assist students already engaged with course materials. Feel free to message your tutor via Penji to give them idea of what you would like to review. You can even share documents!

Learning Groups

Some sections of classes that are considered high-challenge offer peer or graduate assistant-led learning groups. The leader facilitates discussion and understanding of the material and how to best prepare and study for the class including improving specific study skills for that course. If you are a faculty member looking for a Learning Group Leader, please contact Kelli Listenbee, Director of Learning Support Services at 870.972.3150 or klee@astate.edu

Learning Support Coaches

Learning Support Coaches can help you create study plans, assist with study skills, or develop a time management plan that works for you. They can also help identify specific resources on campus to best assist you! Contact Kyle Walker at 870.972.2089 or kwalker@AState.edu with questions. Make an appointment here.

Study Group Space

The Academic Hub is located on the 3rd floor of the Library and is designed for formal and informal study groups and student learning. Its location in the library allows students to have immediate access to reference material, and library and learning assistance staff. Much of the furniture is mobile allowing for students to quickly form small groups to study or work on a project together.
