A: ASC tutoring services are provided free to all WCC students and do not require an application.
Q: Must I have an appointment to meet with an ASC tutor?
A: In most cases tutors are available on a drop-in basis during open hours. An appointment might be helpful during busy times, but appointments are not required for most subjects.

Q: How often can I meet with an ASC writing tutor for each paper?
A: There is no limit! Students who work with a writing tutor multiple times during the process of writing a paper
are more successful. ASC writing tutors will assist in any step of the writing process from brainstorming and outlining to a final edit.
Q: Why should I come to the ASC for tutoring?
A: Tutors are trained to provide quality, student-centered assistance. Writing and Math ASC tutors hold a Bachelor’s degree or higher in a related subject area. Computer and health science tutors hold degrees in their areas. ASC tutors have all been in your shoes. Their sole focus is to guide and support you.
Q: In what courses can I receive assistance?
A: ASC tutors can assist you with most of your college courses. The Writing Center can assist with any class in which you are writing papers. Along with English papers, writing tutors have assisted with papers in History, Psychology, Sociology, Education, and other subjects. Math tutors will assist students with any math course or math questions in any class. Tutors are also available to help with nursing, biology, chemistry, and other sciences. Study skills tutoring is available in any area.
Q: Who can receive tutoring?

Receiving tutoring means that you are utilizing all your resources so that you will be successful in college!
