Make a Difference

Learning Centers student employees work one-on-one and in group and classroom settings to help their peers develop their skills and reach their full academic potential.

Deepen Your Knowledge

One of the best ways to gain a deeper understanding of the material you are studying is to teach it to others. By helping your fellow students to learn the material, you help yourself to solidify, expand, and retain your knowledge of the subject.

Check out what our peer leaders have to say about working at the Learning Centers.

(Working as a study group leader has) "improved my leadership and communication skills, and I have become a better planner and organizer.”

“Being an LA (Learning Assistant) was extremely enjoyable. I loved the job, every single aspect of it.”

“I like working for the LCs (Learning Centers) because it gives me the opportunity to help students become academically successful while at Rutgers. Being able to help others is the greatest gift that anyone can give.”
