The Learning Center

The Learning Center (TLC) provides students with free academic support services including tutoring, computer-based tutorials, and subject study groups. We are dedicated to preparing students for academic success. Members of the Learning Center work with various departments on campus to ensure that we provide quality support for our diverse student population. We work together with the faculty to address individual concerns and retention issues regarding the needs of all students at Wentworth.

The Learning Center is staffed by peer and faculty tutors who are available to assist students in many subjects.  Our most popular subjects for tutoring are in mathematics and sciences.  The Learning Center is also staffed by professional writing tutors, from whom students may receive assistance with questions about writing papers at any stage of the writing process, such as brainstorming ideas, conducting research, preparing outlines and correcting grammar and sentence structure.

Students are encouraged to make appointments, but we also have designated drop in hours.

Located in 402 Beatty Hall, the Learning Center is open Monday through Thursday between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. and Fridays 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m each semester. Subject specific study groups also occur on the weekends. Students may check the Learning Center web site on LConnect under Academic Resources for the mission statement, appointment scheduler and a complete listing of services.

Academic Advising

The goals of the Wentworth's Academic Advising Program are to advise, to inform, and to mentor.

Academic Advisors help students complete and achieve success within their respective academic programs. Advisors, who are usually Wentworth faculty, guide students in their academic choices/actions and the impact those choices/actions may have on their careers.

Wentworth believes that informed students making educated decisions develop critical thinking and decision-making skills. Such a process aids in developing self-sufficiency and self-confidence needed in the working world.

Disability Services

Disability Services provides support that allows students with disabilities to participate fully in the life of the community. Wentworth subscribes to the policies set forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA) and in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which mandate equal opportunity in education programs and activities for students with disabilities.

Students with physical, medical, psychiatric, and learning disabilities are eligible to utilize Disability Services to arrange for reasonable accommodations and seek ongoing support. Students interested in receiving accommodations must follow the Accommodation Process and meet with Disability Services each semester.

All sessions with Disability staff members are free of charge and strictly confidential. No information will be released without the student's permission, except in cases of emergency. Disability Counselors are sensitive to issues of gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, and disabilities.
