About the Learning Resources Center
Penn State Altoona's Robert L. Smith Learning Resources Center (LRC) helps students to be successful in learning. All services are free to Penn State Altoona students. The LRC is located on the first floor of the Eiche Library. Tutoring is handled primarily by professional tutors or by instructors from the discipline during the fall and spring semesters. In some subjects, peer tutoring is also available. Peer tutors are students who have aced the class you are seeking help with and have received tutor training.
Please remember that tutoring is not intended to replace your class but to add more detail to what you have learned in class or during your instructor’s office hours.
To access these free services:

For many courses, there is a designated table where you can find help at almost any time on weekdays.
