Meet the Director

Niki Amarantides

Questions welcomed here! That’s what we say at the Center for Learning. All questions are welcome here.

You may have questions like: How much do I need to study? How do I manage time if I don’t have any classes on Tuesdays or Thursdays? Should I get a job? What’s the best way to take notes? How do I get through all this reading? I studied, but why didn’t I do well on my test? We are here to help you get answers to those questions and many others.

Start by checking out the Center for Learning website, where you can find information about Study Tables (free, drop-in group tutoring for some of SPU’s most challenging classes). There you will also find online resources as well. In addition, we have a list of faculty-recommended private tutors if you would like private tutoring. If you want to meet with a staff member to talk about study strategies, call or stop by our office in Lower Moyer Hall to make an appointment.

The Writing Center is another resource you will want to use. Located in the Ames Library, the Writing Center is for all writers: from brainstorming, to researching, to final draft, you will want to work with trained peer tutors to learn how to do your best work.

If you are a student with a disability, check in with Disability Support Services so that you can set up your academic accommodations. DSS is a great place to get your questions answered.

We are so glad you are here. Your questions and you are always welcome at the Center for Learning!
