How it works
The Writing Center is a drop-in tutoring service. It's best to arrive at the start of a shift to reserve an open session during that shift. You may also stop by during regular Library hours to plan ahead and reserve a session up to a week in advance. Ask at the main ARC Desk for the Writing Center Sign-Up binder. Individual tutorial sessions average 40 minutes.
The Academic Resource Center provides proctoring services for computer and paper-based exams. The staff work directly with faculty to obtain testing material and determine a schedule.
The testing center is committed to providing high quality support services to our students and faculty. Located on the ground floor of the Willet Library we provide a proctored, secure, quiet, relaxing environment for test takers.
Proctoring services for non-Wesleyan students are available. Please contact Dr. KaShanda Ray, assistant dean of retention and student success firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the schedule.
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 the Academic Resource Center. 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 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.
I loved my experience as a CPM because not only was I been able to work with other students on their career development, but I grew exponentially in my own development
