Center for Teaching and Learning

The Center for Teaching and Learning is a unique facility staffed with both professional educators and students (peer tutors) who provide service to all students who need extra help in their college work. Cazenovia College students are expected to succeed in a challenging intellectual environment. It is not unusual for a student to need help in gaining and maintaining an adequate level of academic excellence. Recognizing this, the Center for Teaching and Learning at Cazenovia College is designed to provide students with opportunities to maximize their academic potential.

To achieve this goal, the Center for Teaching and Learning offers several alternatives to assist in learning such as one-on-one or small-group tutoring; assistance in developing strategic learning skills; and techniques designed to improve writing, reading and mathematics proficiency.

The accessible location on the campus (next door to the library) and the Center’s convenient hours are designed to meet the needs of students.  Students may meet with a Professional Tutor for in-depth help with specific courses, or they may see a Peer Tutor.  The professional staff of the Center for Teaching and Learning offers study skills assistance, workshops on a variety of subjects, and academic counseling.
