ARC Offers Peer Tutoring Program to Assist Students

Sep. 26, 2017

Peer Tutoring Program Available for Students
Helping students achieve greater confidence, independence and success as learners

As the semester continues, the Academic Resource Center (ARC) encourages students who may be presenting a need for additional subject-matter assistance to take advantage of The Peer Tutoring Program.

The Peer Tutoring Program provides a pool of capable tutors who can work one-on-one with students to help them achieve greater confidence, independence, and success as learners. It serves all students who are currently enrolled in courses at Webster University in St. Louis, free of charge.

Individual peer tutoring is available by appointment for both short-term "catch-up" assistance and for ongoing support. Drop-in tutoring is available at the Webster Groves campus in certain subjects. These schedules can be found here.

Click the "Schedule a Tutoring Appointment" button on the arc website to schedule an appointment via MYWCOnline.

Graduate, extended campus, and international students may also inquire about tutoring opportunities via email at tutoring@webster.edu. Within 24 hours, a member of the tutoring program will be in contact with the students.  

Students are encouraged to visit the ARC website to view what students can expect during a session as well as tips to ensure successful appointments with our tutors.

Last summer, the Academic Resource Center earned the International Tutor Training Program Certification (ITTPC) for its Tutoring and Writing Center programs from the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA).  Chris Robinson, Tutoring Program Coordinator, and Carolyn I. Brown, Writing Center & Plagiarism Prevention Program Coordinator, held joint educational and training sessions for their employees during the Spring 2017 semester.  

Erica Ellard, Director of the Academic Resource Center, said “Chris and Carolyn formalized their already-strong training materials in order to pursue the ITTPC certification because of all it has to offer Webster University’s students. With well-trained and individually-certificated tutors and writing coaches assisting Webster students, both students and faculty members benefit and, ideally, we increase student persistence and graduation rates.”
