Learning Services


The Student Success Center offers free tutoring for most freshman and sophomore courses, and a select number of junior and senior level courses.

Tutoring provides an opportunity to practice what is learned in class and discuss what is presented in your course text. Work at your own pace with a tutor who is trained to assist in developing and managing student learning and study strategies.

Fill out the tutor request form. You can decide to meet once or twice a week with a tutor.

Come prepared to your tutoring session by attempting the reading assignments before your session, identifying information you found confusing from lecture, and/or bringing challenging homework assignments. Your peer tutor will ask you to work problems, explain theories, and define terms. It’s OK if you don’t get it right the first time, or even the second. The tutor is there to assist you through the rough spots and encourage you to succeed.

Academic Counseling

Academic counseling is free and available to all undergraduate students at the Winona campus. Meet with a staff member or a Peer Learning Assistant to discuss whatever academic concerns you might have. Topics include, but are not limited to, time management; test preparation; taking notes in lecture; reading strategies for handouts and textbooks; and much more.
