WVNCC | West Virginia Northern Community College

Housed in each ASC is the campus Tutoring Center. Each center hires tutors who are current students demonstrating above average performance in the courses/content in which they tutor. Students using tutoring services have the opportunity to benefit from learning from these peer tutors who have been through the same courses, mastered the content, and developed strategies that contributed to their success and can be passed along to their peers.


In addition, the Tutoring Center staff also includes tutors who are not current students but who may have been students or who have demonstrated mastery of course content, such as through degree programs in the content area. Several of these tutors have long served students of WVNCC in a tutoring capacity and well understand the challenges and needs of the institution’s students.


If a student needs a tutor in a subject for which a tutor is not currently available, ASC staff will work with faculty and others in identifying and providing a peer tutor.


Finally, Tutoring Center staff can provide guidance and training to students in student success skills. For example, tutors can direct students to electronic and print-based resources for assistance with assignments. Additionally, tutors can provide tips and strategies for improving study skills, time management, managing test anxiety, and note taking.
