Peosta Learning Center
The Peosta Learning Center is a comfortable, friendly place where staff helps underprepared students prepare, prepared students advance and advanced students excel. Students are encouraged to visit the Learning Center to take advantage of the open computer lab and academic assistance in a variety of subjects.
Drop-in help is available for all levels of mathematics. Using an informal, kitchen-table style of working with students, professional math instructors work their way from student to student, guiding them toward understanding. Help is offered in areas such as algebra, statistics, physics, calculus and dosage calculations.
Writing help is available by appointment or on a drop-in basis. Appointments may be made by phone or at the sign-in desk. Students may receive individualized writing help for any class. Students who wish to receive help with editing or revision should bring in two, double-spaced, printed copies. The open computer lab may be used for writing or printing.
The Learning Center offers strategies leading toward academic success for those who may feel overwhelmed and need to brush up on basic study skills. A one-on-one approach is used to teach time management, testing skills, textbook reading and note-taking.
Extra help is available for health sciences courses such as Anatomy & Physiology I and II, Microbiology, Biology or Chemistry. An open lab also gives students hands-on experience with laboratory concepts. Registered nurses are available for content assistance in all nursing courses.
