What is a Learning Assistant?
A Learning Assistant is a highly trained peer tutor who works directly with an instructor to support the learning process.
The Learning Assistant attends class with you and holds weekly study sessions. The Learning Assistant (or LA) has successfully completed the class you are taking, so can answer your questions about what you are learning and help you understand challenging material. The LA will help you review for your exams and suggest successful study strategies.
