The Learning Hub offers an array of programming to support SLU students in their coursework, including both one-to-one sessions and workshops. The Hub is staffed by professionals with years of teaching experience.
For handouts from our workshops alongside links to other writing guides visit our Resources For Writers page.
Writing sessions provide students the chance to talk about their work with a professional writer. Students are welcome to schedule an appointment at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming and outlining to fine-tuning a final draft. We can also help with managing a heavy reading load. Writing sessions can be in-person or online. Review the schedule and sign up.
Are you working on a quantitative project? SLU’s Quantitative Reasoning Fellow is available for one-to-one sessions focused on developing survey tools and using SPSS, among other areas. Review the schedule and sign up.
One-to-one reference sessions allow students to connect with SLU’s librarian, Mason Brown. Mason can help students access SLU’s library databases and find quality sources for research projects. Students can sign up on our online schedule. Mason is also available to meet with students by appointment. Email him at email@example.com.
Developing a digital portfolio that includes selected academic work, a bio and your resume can have many benefits for students, including for job searches and applications to graduate and professional programs. Our Digital Portfolios Specialist is available to work with students in one-to-one sessions. See the digital portfolios site for more information and sample portfolios.
