Learning Resources

The Learning Resources Center, located in the Millstein Library Building (ML 250), is the home of the Writing Center, Study-Skills Center, Disability-Resources Center, and Tutoring Center.

Free tutoring in various subject areas is available. (Tutoring depends upon availability of tutors and funding. The Center cannot guarantee that a tutor will be immediately available for the subject that you have in mind.)

Walk-in help with academic matters is also available. You do not need an appointment. However, when you stop by without an appointment, please bear with us. Dr. Lou Ann Sears, the Center director, may be helping someone else or on her way to a meeting, etc.

You are welcome to take the free handouts and use the computers for paper writing and other academic pursuits.

The Center

Provides disability resources for registered students.

The Center is open during the fall and spring terms Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Call for summer hours. These hours are subject to change. Hours for April through June will be posted on the door of ML 250. Lou Ann's hours are posted on her door (ML 240). Lou Ann is a member of administration and faculty. She also teaches composition.

For more information, call (724) 836-7098 or e-mail.

Writing Center

The Writing Center is designed to help students during every step of the writing process. A multitude of handouts and books is available for students' use. Drop-in tutoring for composition is available several hours each week. If you are ever experiencing any difficulties writing a paper or if you would simply like feedback from a tutor, please feel free to stop by the Learning Resources Center for help.

Online Writing Center

New for Spring 2020! The Learning Resources Center is offering online paper feedback from Dr. Sears and Mr. Hitt; additionally, Mr. Rubus will review Natural Science capstones. This resource is free to all Pitt-Greensburg students, but in order to use the Online Writing Center, you must have a Gmail account.

Submit your essay to the Online Writing Center >>

All sections of the above form must be completed before you may submit your essay, and as noted on the form, any vague responses may prevent you from receiving feedback. The average turnaround time for papers is 48-72 hours; however, excessive submissions may push that back. If it will take longer for us to get your paper back to you, you will receive an e-mail with an updated timeframe.

Tutoring Services

The Learning Resources Center offers free tutoring services to all University students. Tutors are trained, faculty-recommended Pitt-Greensburg students who have earned an A in the course. 

Study Strategies

Pamphlets and handouts are available in the rack outside ML 250. One-on-one help is also available.
