Alvernia University Writing & Learning Center is free to Alvernia students.
The Writing & Learning Center caters to many classes on a daily basis. However, if we do not regularly staff a tutor for your class, we will work on finding someone to help you.
We keep records of every tutoring session. You may request a copy of the tutoring session summary to give to your professor.
Everyone! We have a plethora of students coming in from every major and all degree programs. We welcome anyone who is seeking assistance in reemphasizing what is taught in class.
You can choose from three different types of sessions. You can opt to have a one-on-one tutoring session, during which a tutor will help explain course concepts. Group sessions include a tutor and several students to help promote a better understanding of course material. The final type of session is a workshop; this is where a GA will prepare a mini-lesson on a broad topic (such as time management or writing styles) to help you succeed.
A syllabus, the assignment, any notes you took during the class and your textbook.
You will not be laughed at by anyone. It is perfectly normal to seek assistance for college level courses.
Yes. Only tutors are allowed to make appointments and the records of the session are not released without the permission of the tutee to even the professors.
