SPRING 2015 -- Guided Study Groups (GSG) sessions will resume the week of January 25th. Please visit our web site in the future. We will post a spring schedule as soon as available. Also, be sure to visit your faculty and TA office hours and departmental resource rooms (e.g., Chemistry Resource Room or Physics Learning Resource Center) for assistance.
January 2015 - New Guided Study Groups (GSG) Program Coordinator: Penn State Learning is pleased to welcome Dr. Brendaly Drayton to our GSG staff. Brendaly will assist the GSG team with day-to-day program coordination and supervision. Learn more about Brendaly by checking out her profile under "About Us" / "People".
Tutorial assistance for the courses below can be obtained by participating in Guided Study Groups (GSG) during the fall and spring semesters. GSG sessions are free and are led two to three times a week by an undergraduate peer leader, who has previously met success in the course. Click on the "Study Groups" tab for detailed information.

Learning Assistance Resources for Science and Engineering Students
Many colleges at Penn State provide advising and tutoring resources locally for students who take their courses. Some departments also provide private tutor lists. So if you do not find exactly what you need, please ask your classmates and instructors if they know how you can find available tutors.
Here are some links to college-based academic assistance resources.
