The Tutoring Resource Center
Our emphasis is on collaborative learning and empowerment.
The Tutoring Resource Center is an open, versatile space in the Haas Library where students can request support from peer tutors with coursework, work on projects, discuss effective learning strategies, and deepen their connection with their academic surroundings.
Peer tutors are undergraduate students who are trained to support other students (peers) in WCSU courses and recommended by department faculty. Tutoring is available by appointment in over 15 academic disciplines primarily in the subjects of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Psychology, and Social Sciences.
Peer tutors work one-to-one with students or in small groups (2-5 people) through interactive discussion. These interactive discussions are designed to help students to think independently about their course work and aimed to proactively incite students’ development of critical thinking, problem solving, and study skills beyond tutoring sessions.
One can schedule between 1 to 2 hour appointment per day. Each student is alloted 3 hours a week in an effort to meet the tutoring demands of all WCSU students. Tutoring sessions occur at various times throughout the week and on Sunday’s (depending on the peer tutors’ availability). All appointments are made through a scheduling portal called MyWCOnline. This is separate from WCSU’s Banner system and therefore a new user will have to register for an account with their WCSU email and student ID first.
Take a look at our General Policies page to find out more information. This is a free service to all those undergraduates currently enrolled at WCSU.
