Praxis Core Tutoring Offered by Tutoring Learning Center

The Tutoring Learning Center has created a Praxis Lab, which offers free tutoring to students preparing for the Praxis Core exam, and is set to begin on Monday, January 30. It will run until May 10. The Praxis Lab will be available weekly Monday-Wednesday from 6-8 p.m. in room 026E of Albertson Hall (right next to the Tutoring-Learning Center). There will be slots available to work with our tutors each night from 6-7 p.m. and 7-8 p.m. Students can sign up for as many times per week as they like, and we will be able to accommodate up to 20 students in each 1-hour time slot, as long as some students bring their own laptops. During each time slot we will have 2 tutors present to assist students. 

To sign up, students need to visit the TLC any time between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. starting the first week of school. During that visit, students will watch an orientation video with information on the test and the Praxis Lab before signing up for times to visit the lab. The orientation and sign-up process will take approximately 30 minutes. 

Before their first visit to the Praxis Lab, students need to have logins for two sites that we will use to prepare for the test, and Learning Express. Learning Express is available for free, costs $9.99. Directions for signing up for both will be included in the orientation video. Students do not need to have anything completed before visiting the TLC to sign-up.

If you have questions, please contact Jake at or call 715-346-4315.

Praxis Core Calculator Change 

Educational Testing Services (ETS) no longer allows students to bring their own calculator into the Praxis Core exam. Students must use the four-function calculator provided by ETS in the exam.

We recommend practicing with the four-function calculator prior to taking the Praxis Core exam. A practice calculator is available online.
