The learning center offers tutoring in a wide variety of subjects and personalized academic coaching. As a student, you may utilize our services at the Bethlehem Campus, Pocono Campus, or online regardless of where you take your classes.


Tutoring is not only for students who are struggling in a course.  Our most successful students take advantage of the Learning Center to reinforce their understanding of course content and refine their subject-specific study strategies.
