Learning and Writing Centers

Facilitating academic and intellectual growth through tutoring, workshops, and more.

The Learning and Writing Centers comprise a single department and student support service, with missions rooted in helping students achieve academic success.

Our services, delivered via fellow peers working as student tutors, are centered around providing academic support and engagement outside of class and are free to all Adelphi students.

Learning Center tutors mainly focus on specific academic areas — like Biology, Nursing, Accounting, or Computer Science — while Writing Center tutors focus on writing, across all academic disciplines and across the entire writing process–from thesis construction, research, and organization to grammar, language, and citation.

Skills Development

Build a foundation for academic success at Adelphi and beyond.

These are areas that we focus on developing throughout all of our service models and in all academic areas or subjects offered

  • time management
  • studying
  • note-taking
  • critical reading
  • test-taking
  • critical thinking
  • research
  • interpersonal communication (public speaking)
  • writing

We want students to know that coming in for tutoring is a sign of strength, not weakness, and that tutoring is not just about ‘getting help’—it’s a way to learn more effectively.
