Learning Support Resources
Learning Resources offers individual consultations and group workshops that support students in developing more efficient and effective study skills and learning strategies. Learning specialists work with students to address time and project management, academic reading and writing, note-taking, problem-solving, exam preparation, test-taking, self-regulation, and flexibility.
Tutoring offers free access to on-campus tutors for many Penn courses in both drop-in and weekly contract format. Tutoring may be individual or in small groups. Tutors will assist with applying course information, understanding key concepts, and developing course-specific strategies. Tutoring support is available throughout the term but is best accessed early in the semester. First-time users must meet with a staff member; returning users may submit their requests online.
The University of Pennsylvania provides reasonable accommodations to students with disabilities who have self-identified and received approval from Student Disabilities Services (SDS). Students can contact SDS and make appointments to discuss and/or request accommodations by calling 215-573-9235.
