Welcome to The Learning Center (TLC) at Skyline College!


 The Learning Center Philosophy:

Through a close collaboration between faculty, tutors, and students, The Learning Center empowers students to be responsible, active learners. The Learning Center is a flexible learning environment providing academic support for students in most Skyline College courses through supplemental instruction, peer tutoring, workshops, and computer-assisted learning. We are ready to assist you with writing, reading, math, science, or other college courses!

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the program students will be able to:

  • Increase awareness of strengths and challenges in academic work
  • Seek assistance from various and appropriate services on campus                          
  • Increase personal development in areas such as self-monitoring, time management, persistence, and academic proficiency

What you should know about academic assistance or tutoring:

  1. Students must be enrolled in a Learning Skills Course (LSKL) to receive supplemental instruction or peer tutoring.
  2. Students are responsible for recording their hours accurately on each visit using the Accudemia sign in stations: For tutoring, sign in directly at the sign-in stations located at each tutoring lab (Math, WRL, etc.). For general studying or main floor computer use, students sign in and out at the front desk computer. 
  3. Academic assistance requires students to take responsibility for their own learning, a Tutoring Contract is signed by each student at their first session with a tutor which defines these terms.

Academic assistance is provided through The Learning Center Labs -- Find out more here!
