OLSH Writing & Learning Center

The OLSH Writing & Learning Center (The OWL Center) is open to all OLSH students for individualized tutoring. The OWL Center includes two "Centers" sharing one space:

Writing Center students are tutored by either Mrs. Desman or Mr. Rodgers, or a selected and trained peer tutor. During their writing conference students are provided with individualized tutoring in any writing assignment for their classes.

Learning Center students are tutored individually or in any of their subjects by the OWL Center instructor, or a selected and trained peer tutor. During the Learning Center conference the student is provided individualized tutoring with any subject for which they need help.

Students can also be recommended to the OWL Center by parents, teachers or guidance counselors.

The OWL Center is modeled on national college writing and learning center models. The following university professors are offering professional support to the OLSH Writing and Learning Center: Dr. James Purdy, Director of the Duquesne University Writing Center and Dr. Christine Abbott, Director of the La Roche College Writing Center.

The OWL Center is located on the second floor library reading porch.
