The Tutoring Program

Tutoring is available for all registered Wesleyan College undergraduate students. The goal of tutoring is to supplement the work accomplished in the classroom. Current students who have achieved success in a class or subject matter are trained to assist their peers in learning concepts and developing study skills in this area. Tutoring can take place on an individual basis or in small groups.

Tutoring is not only recommended when a student has a question about course content, but also throughout the studying and exam preparation process.

Tutors are prepared to assist students by utilizing academic success strategies such as reviewing class materials, discussing past tests, working on sample problems, and preparing for exams. This in turn helps the student deepen her understanding of the material and strengthens her ability to demonstrate her knowledge.

The Academic Resource Center provides free academic counseling and tutoring for students who seek to improve understanding of course content and academic success skills. Group workshops and individual sessions are available throughout the academic year. Students may set up an appointment with a peer tutor or with the Director of Student Success. The director offers confidential counseling with individual students for academic issues. Tutoring schedules are revised each semester and posted in the center. In addition, during the fall semester the Director of Student Success offers weekly study skill sessions designed to help students at Wesleyan College excel academically.

Tutoring can take place at any location on campus that is conducive to learning.

 

The Office of Disability Services

If a student with a disability wishes to receive an accommodation, it is the responsibility of the student to inform the Coordinator of Disability Resources and request an accommodation by completing the Disability Services Request Form. The student must provide current documentation from a qualified licensed professional as soon as possible prior to when accommodations are desired. The documentation should include the specific diagnosis attributing to the disability, how the diagnosis was determined, and the effects the disability will have on the student's collegiate life. Students may request a Wesleyan College Disability Services Verification Form on which a licensed professional can provide this information.

If the submitted documentation meets the requirements, the Coordinator of Disability Resources will approve reasonable accommodations and notify the student of this approval. If the documentation does not meet the requirements, the Coordinator of Disability Resources will inform the student that additional information or contact with the medical professional is required. Once approval of the accommodation request has been obtained from the Coordinator of Disability Resources, the student is expected to identify herself and present the documentation provided by Disability Resources to the appropriate staff or faculty member as soon as possible. The student is then expected to meet with the appropriate staff or faculty member to determine how accommodations will be administered. The student will then return the paperwork to Disability Resources in order to finalize the accommodations.

Accommodations that decrease the integrity of a course or program or cause an undue burden will not be approved. Accommodations will not be granted retroactively. Accommodations will be determined on an individual basis according to specific student needs. To continue to be considered for academic accommodations, a student must request services each semester. Other accommodation requests must be made annually. Any individual who feels that she has been denied reasonable accommodations, access, or been discriminated against on the basis of a disability, should file a complaint using the College's Student Complaint Process which can be found in the Wesleyanne: Student Handbook.

For questions or more information please contact Christy Henry, assistant dean of academic resources at chenry@wesleyancollege.edu or (478) 757-5219.
