Eastern's Learning Lab
The Learning Lab is located in room 102A (inside the Student Lounge) and is staffed by Student Success Coaches. Hours for the Learning Lab are Monday through Thursday 9am - 5pm.
A Student Success Coach will be available during posted hours to assist students with online resources.
Students, if you are having difficulty with class assignments, you are struggling with routine coursework, or you just are not happy with your academic performance — maybe it's time for a tutor.
Students are invited to take advantage of this online one-to-one tutoring service at anytime.
You can access your personalized account from any Eastern Blackboard course by following these simple steps:
- Log into Blackboard and navigate to one of your courses where you want additional tutoring.
- In the course menu or sidebar, look for a link to Tutor.com (see the image at right for an example of what the link looks like).
- Click on the link, and you immediately will access the Tutor.com website where you can request a tutoring session.
Please contact Monica Wilson with any questions or concerns about tutoring (email: firstname.lastname@example.org), or call 304-434-8000 ext. 9235.
