Students studying together at the Learning Center on campus

The Wolak Learning Center

The Wolak Leaning Center is available to all SNHU students who either need or desire improvement in academic performance. The Wolak Learning Center's services are provided year round on the Manchester campus. Please contact our office and we will recommend the most appropriate program for you.

Located on the second floor of the library, Wolak Learning Center provides a broad selection of academic support services. These carefully designed services are available to meet specific needs that may arise during a student's course of study at Southern New Hampshire University. Support services include, but are not limited to, the following:

Tutoring

The Wolak Learning Center offers tutoring to SNHU students in select SNHU courses through drop-in and/or individual tutoring (in-person and virtually). Tutors are faculty members, graduate assistants, and peer educators. In addition, peer educators are hired as class embedded tutors in select courses to provide an additional resource to students and faculty members.

Mentoring

Effective study and organizational skills are essential to achieving academic and personal goals. The peer mentoring program provides assistance to students looking to improve their time management, exam preparation and note-taking skills. Additionally, students develop meaningful personal relationships, gain practical advice, learn best practices from their peers, and increase their self-confidence.

Learning Strategies Seminar

Many students have never mastered the appropriate study and organizational skills necessary for academic success at the collegiate level. The Learning Strategies Seminar (LSS 100) is a 3 credit course in which students are taught a variety of learning skills and strategies that will assist them in becoming more independent learners and in maximizing their educational experience. Assistance is offered to students on an as-needed basis.

Peer Educator Training

The Peer Educator Training Program at SNHU is a vital component to tutors helping students  achieve their goals. Peer educators are expected to complete ongoing training. If you are interested in becoming a peer educator, we would welcome the opportunity to speak with you about requirements and training. Students who have participated in the program have found that it adds another dimension to their learning experience at SNHU and provides a vital service for their peers.
