Types of Tutoring & Workshops

Per the Governor’s instructions, the Learning Center staff have been asked to work remotely until at least March 31. You can still reach our staff by emailing the Learning Center team at [email protected]. Tutoring will still be available online!  Students should continue to schedule appointments with tutors using the MyWCOnline scheduling system. We have cancelled appointments on our old schedules to make way for new schedules that expand our online capabilities.  These new tutoring schedules are posted on MyWCOnline and with appointments starting on Monday, March 23, which is the first day of instruction following Spring Break.  Our tutors are new to online tutoring and we ask for your patience as we all learn to use these new technologies.  

Whether you're looking for help with a specific assignment or an entire course, we're happy to help. Look through our tutoring and workshop offerings to find the fit that's best for you.

Embedded Tutoring (ET) and Supplemental In-Class Support (SIS) study sessions

Embedded tutors are members of your class who prepare study aids after each class. The study aids help summarize that day's lecture and are optimized fo different learning styles. Check with your Embedded Tutor for days, times, and location of your assigned class. If you cannot attend these sessions, there is regular tutoring available for your course at the Learning Center. You're also welcome to attend both!

Writing Skills Tutoring

The Learning Center works on the premise that writers develop over the entire human lifespan, and all writers, from beginners to practiced professionals, can benefit from conversation with and advice from other writers. We can help anyone in the college community who is interested in becoming a more skillful and confident writer. 

The Center is staffed by experienced writing tutors. We offer two types of writing help: in person, one-on-one tutoring and E tutoring. Our writing tutors can help you with any kind of written assignment. We can also help our ESOL students tackle their writing work.

One-on-One

One-on-One is the time-tested, tried-and-true approach in which one student meets with one tutor, usually for one hour at a time

E Tutoring

E tutoring gives students who can’t come to The Learning Center the chance to get feedback on their writing using an online platform.

Workshops & Study Groups

Workshops and study groups are free to attend.  Drop in or reserve your spot in advance on the Workshops and Study Groups schedule on WCOnline.
