Learning Den Tutoring for the fall 2020 semester will resume in a virtual capacity on Wednesday, September 2, 2020. All sessions are offered on a drop-in basis–no registration is required. Students can view the schedule and access Zoom links here. If you have any questions, please email Dr. Kaitlin Quigley.
The Learning Den offers three main programs to students: a group tutoring program that allows students to sign up for appointments, drop-in help rooms to support several specific departments, and personalized tutoring as needed. Tutors can assist students with:
- Review and strengthening of subject-specific material knowledge
- Assist with homework-like problems
- Course-specific study skills and exam preparation
Group Tutoring Program
The Learning Den provides group tutoring for all registered students in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering. Tutoring is conducted in small group format, with a maximum of six students in each group.
Tutors review course-specific material and encourage students to ask questions and exchange information. Students should come to tutoring sessions prepared with questions and specific topics that they would like to review. Students can expect to work with other students in the group while the tutor helps to guide them to understanding. Tutoring is not a substitute for class attendance nor is it a place to just do homework. If you need help in a subject, request support early and often.

Help Rooms for Economics and Neuroscience
The Learning Den operates Help Rooms for Economics and Neuroscience courses. Students enrolled in foundational Neuroscience and Economics courses can receive tutoring on a drop-in basis. Unlike group tutoring sessions, which are course specific, the help room tutors are able to assist students with a variety of courses.
Help Room Schedule
Economics (Veena T.): Wednesdays, 6-8pm EST; Thursdays, 10:30am-12:30pm EST
Neuroscience (Alexander L.): Mondays, 12-2pm EST; Wednesdays, 6-8pm EST
