PLNU’s Tutorial Center provides academic enrichment resources to help traditional undergraduate students manage the demands of multiple course requirements.

The Tutorial Center is here to help! Tutorial Services is an integral part of the overall mission of PLNU in that it supports and nurtures the development of the student as an active and independent learner. Our goal is to provide resources and opportunities that teach the skills and strategies that help students become independent and active learners while promoting academic and personal success.

Peer Tutoring

Peer Tutoring sessions with faculty-recommended PLNU tutors include Individual (1:1 session) and Small Group.

Review Sessions

Review Sessions held by selected departments.

Academic Coaching
