The Brown Learning Resource Center (LRC) offers academic support to all
PMC students. Our professional tutors—writing tutors, math
tutor, learning specialist and the Director—help you adjust
to the new academic environment of college. Our tutoring is individually
tailored to your learning style and needs. Working with a tutor,
you will discover strategies for tackling new kinds of learning
and ways to adjust your study methods to the pace and volume of
college work. You may wish to work with a tutor to sharpen your
writing and math skills. There is no additional fee for tutoring.
All students are welcome to make an appointment to meet with one
of the Learning Resource Center tutors during Orientation to discuss
individual learning needs and to determine which LRC services might
be helpful. If you don’t need an appointment before scheduling
classes, you are still encouraged to learn more about the Center
when you arrive on campus in the upcoming semester. At any time during your
study at PMC, you may use the tutoring services of the LRC simply
by calling or stopping by the Center. Many PMC students use the
Learning Resource Center regularly.
New students who live nearby the College are strongly encouraged
to visit campus before Orientation to meet with the LRC
Students with Disabilities
The Brown Learning Resource Center also assists students with disabilities.
If you are a student with a disability—learning disability,
ADHD, vision, hearing or mobility impairment, or a student with
a chronic medical condition, for example—you should plan to
meet with the LRC Director during Orientation to learn about services
and accommodations that might be helpful to you.
All students with disabilities who request academic accommodations
must provide the College with documentation of their disability
and must request accommodations prior to the beginning of classes
in the upcoming semester. Decisions regarding academic accommodations for students
with disabilities are made by the LRC Director. Disability documentation
should be sent to Mary Walsh, LRC Director, or faxed to her attention
Questions regarding this portion of the form or the Learning Resource
Center may be directed to Mary Walsh, Director, Brown Learning Resource
Center, at 617-731-7181 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
