Our Services

The Chemistry Learning Center also provides the following services and resources for students:

One-on-One Appointments

Use the scheduling tool to meet with a coach 1:1 in a virtual Zoom coaching room. Each coach has made his/her own Zoom room and will email you a link to use after the appointment is make. 

CLC Virtual Walk-In Hours

If you have quick questions and would prefer not to schedule a full 30-minute appointment, feel free to join a walk-in room. Coaches will be available 12–5 p.m. daily.

Resources

The CLC has copies of the solutions manual for assigned homework problems. Also for your reference, we have a library of chemistry textbooks and keep notebooks of old exams and quizzes on file. Computers are available to access Canvas and online chemistry study guides.

Special Study Sessions

CLC coaches are usually available for special study sessions in the Wadsworth Hall Annex before exams. Exam schedules will be announced in your classes.

Organic Chemistry

The CLC provides walk-in hours, individual appointments, study groups, and Supplemental Instruction for students enrolled in organic chemistry courses.

Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a weekly review session that provides you with the chance to get together with classmates and compare notes, discuss important concepts, develop study strategies, and quiz one another.

The SI leaders are students who have already taken the respective chemistry course and earned a high grade, so they are familiar with course content and are eager to help guide you through it. They are prepared to share with you what they have learned about effectively studying for the course.

Learning Center Coaches

CLC coaches are undergraduate students, from a wide range of majors, who have recently taken the chemistry course on which they provide coaching. Our coaches have a thorough understanding of the course material and a desire to help first-year students adjust to college.

The friendships that you develop with your coach and the other students in the CLC will help you to feel like you belong at Michigan Tech—which you do!

History and Purpose

The Chemistry Learning Center (CLC) was established as a resource for all Michigan Tech students enrolled in first-year and organic chemistry courses. The CLC's goals are to assist students in making the transition from high school to college-level expectations, gaining self-confidence, and mastering chemistry concepts.

Students who participate in the CLC usually earn one-half to one full letter grade higher than students who don't. Whether you struggle with chemistry or just need help with a question or two, you are invited to visit us.

There is no cost for any of the services provided - so we encourage you to take advantage of them.
