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.

ATTENTION: The Tutoring and Learning Center is now combined with the Center for Languages and International Collaboration also known as the (CLIC). The TLC will continue meeting in Scott Hall 127 from March 29th - April 2nd. The TLC will officially open as a combined center with the CLIC on Sunday, April 5th at 7 pm. The center will soon feature a high-tech, multi-functional space, a computer lab, a theater, and an individual study room for student use, as well as lots of comfortable chairs and tables inside and outside the center to enjoy. Our space is available for study groups, independent study, and group meetings.
