As we take on our new identity as the Tutoring & Academic Success Centre (TASC), we will be updating our mission, vision, and values.
The Learning Centre offers you many different services. Visit us and browse through our numerous tipsheets: they offer useful tips and strategies for writing, analysing literature and poetry, note-taking, studying for your exams and time management. We can also match you up with a peer tutor who will work with you to improve your English throughout the semester.
You are always welcome to have individual meetings with the staff here, and with our guidance, you can improve your essay writing skills, your reading techniques, and discuss other areas of concern, such as time management, study strategies or effective listening. You can see our drop-in hours here.
Students with learning disabilities should visit the Learning Disabilities website.
We offer many focused workshops here as well, which can help you in preparing for the English Exit Exam or oral presentations, writing your letter of intent for university or applying for scholarships.
Come develop your skills at the Learning Centre. For those who want to get involved with The Learning Centre and the Vanier community, come ask us about our many programs, such as The Vanier Key Society, Peer Tutoring, TLC Assistants and Conversation Partners.
For those of you who enjoy a challenge, we have a variety of contests, such as the Spelling Bee and Public Speaking. For the writers, we invite you to enter our annual creative writing and academic essay contests, or to browse through our collection of student writing.
Whether you want to use our study space for reading or for group work, or if you want to type up an essay in our computer lab, The Learning Centre will always be there for you.
Let us help you develop your skills and talents!
