The Writing and Tutoring Center, formerly the Learning Assistance Center (LAC), is a learner-oriented service that provides academic support and instructional resources to the students, staff and faculty of St. Mary’s University. Our services are free, and we are located in the Rattler Success Center on the third floor of the Blume Library. Current students and faculty can learn more about our services and programs via Gateway; however, overview information about some of our services is provided here.


Tutoring is offered for a variety of subjects in weekly reserved sessions for all students who want to understand course material better and to improve their grades.  One-on-one sessions are also available by appointment. Contact us at 210-436-3203 for more information. Current students and faculty can learn more about the tutoring schedule via Gateway.

Peer Tutoring offers you a chance to get together with classmates, discuss concepts, develop strategies, and test yourself before the professor does. Join a group early in the semester for best results. To make the most of your sessions, attend regularly and come prepared to ask questions.
