Having trouble in class? Need someone to reexplain lecture notes? Stop by the Warrior Tutoring Center! The Warrior Tutoring Center is filled with qualified students who are willing and ready to tutor, and they are open for business. 

The Warrior Tutoring Center is also known as WTC is located in Rosenkrats and is open Monday-Thursday: 9:00am-9:00 pm; Friday: 9:00 am-4:00 pm; and Sunday: 5:00-9:00 pm (in Kemp Library).

They tutor most subjects, they have a group or individual tutoring sessions, you can email the tutor if their assigned hours do not meet your needs, and they have walk-in sessions.

During walk-in sessions, students will find their assigned tutor within the center and during those hours, they assist any problems and issues that the student has. The tutor may have a quick solution, or tutors may outline steps to achieve the goals of the student. 

Brianna Carty, a communication studies tutor, says that “Tutoring allows students to find assistance from other students who have already been through the course they are struggling in. 

Tutors give students someone they can relate to when they encounter their own challenges.”  

Everyone needs help sometimes, and the WTC is the perfect place to go to if your struggling because they are here to help. 

Sometimes the professor does not explain the material to your understanding, and when that happens, going to the tutoring is highly recommended so that you can grasp the concepts of the materials before the test approaches.   

Carty believes that students do not utilize the center as much as they should, and if they did than students’ grades will improve. 

She says, “I don’t believe that students fully take advantage of tutor centers that are provided for them. I feel as though many people find it very difficult to ask for help, so they attempt to solve their problems on their own.”  

The tutors are trained to help students who feel discouraged and wants people to start taking more advantage of the centers so that they can help them past the class. 

They take pride in what they do and they like doing their jobs. 

Brianna, who has been a tutor for almost two years, says, “I enjoy helping students in creating their own techniques to become their own independent learners.

It is a unique experience to watch a student steadily develop skills to help them in the future.” She adds that “we are open to helping out in any way and strive to help you out to the best of our ability.”

If you’re interested in becoming a tutor, you need to maintain a good overall GPA, and have received at least a B in the course you wish to tutor.

You can email the tutoring center, or simply find any tutor who can direct you to the resources you need.

Not only is this a paid position, but you discover new methods of study habits that you can apply to your own college career. 

Carty adds and says, “A good tutor will have the patience and determination needed in order to offer students the best support system and advice.” 

So, if you’re looking for a tutoring job, or just need help stop by the Warrior Tutoring Center.
