The Academic Success Center will be conducting tutoring in an online format for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester. In an effort to keep our students and staff healthy we will not be holding face to face meetings with students. We are committed to supporting our students remotely during this difficult time. Tutors and students will be meeting through Zoom, email and phone calls. If students had previously been working with a tutor, they can contact them directly to make arrangements for a meeting. If students need to make new appointments or just have general questions they can contact Jennifer Jones at email@example.com or (304)788-7144. Please stay tuned and watch our website and Facebook page for any updates and changes
Dedication, talent, and training combine to make the Academic Success Center's tutors extraordinary people. Tutoring sessions can be scheduled on an individualized or group basis. Tutors are available for most subject areas. We will make every attempt to find a tutor in a timely manner for those subjects that are not covered. In addition to course content tutoring, student skills development assistance is provided on an individualized and small group basis upon request.
Tutoring is our most requested service. Please be considerate and cancel if you are not able to keep your scheduled appointment. Repeated "no shows" may affect your ability to be scheduled for future appointments.
Receiving tutoring is a process of learning. It is best that this service not be used simply to "pass the next test".
Tips for Working with Tutors:
- Keep your scheduled appointments and be ready to work when your tutor arrives. Write down information about your assignments, have a copy of the study guide and bring your textbook and class notes.
- Your tutor will not do your homework for you. They will help you to learn, not help you to avoid hard work.
- Prepare beforehand. Formulate specific questions.
- Be ready to concentrate.
- Be clear about what you want.
You can request a tutor by sending a written request via email to Academic Success Center Program Coordinator Jennifer Jones at JRJones@mail.wvu.edu. Please include your name, subject area of difficulty, and your telephone number.
