Free tutoring is available in the Tutoring Center to all Rose State College students, both by appointment and on a drop-in basis, for many general-education courses (subject to tutor availability). Computers are available in the Tutoring Center for students to work on class assignments. Students have 24/7 access to online tutoring through our partnership with Tutor.com. Note that because of tutor shortages, one-on-one tutoring for high school students is not available at this time.
WCOnline Scheduling System
All tutoring is scheduled through the WCOnline scheduling system. Before scheduling a tutor the first time, students must create an account using their Raider email address. Students do not need to create new accounts if they have already registered in this system using their Raider email address. To book an appointment, sign in with your Raider email address and password.
The Tutoring Center is a quiet space where students can study. As this is a study environment, we ask that you refrain from loud or prolonged visiting. The tutors are friendly and knowledgeable and available to help students on an as-needed basis. Students that need in-depth help can schedule a longer session with an available tutor immediately. Keep in mind that tutoring is not a replacement for prerequisite coursework. Drop-in tutoring is not available between semesters.
A tutor does:
- Promote independence in learning
- Facilitate students’ insights and light bulb moments
- Make an effort to reinforce classroom methods
- Respect individual differences
- Make sure the concepts are understood
- Model good learning habits
A tutor does not:
- Teach or lecture class material
- Contradict instructors’ methods
- Know everything
- Do the work for the student
- Help on quizzes or tests
- Students need to know their Student ID number.
- Students should set all electronic devices to silent. If you must answer your cell phone, please leave the Tutoring Center before answering the call.
- Computers in the Tutoring Center are for study and class activities only. Students should not surf the internet or send personal emails from these computers. The Open Computer Lab in the Library may be used for more general purposes.
- Please do your part to keep the noise level low so others can concentrate.
- Please be respectful towards peers and staff.
- Please eat meals outside of the Tutoring Center to help maintain a clean working area.
- The success of the visit depends on the collaboration between the student and tutor. The tutor will not do the work for the student. Students should come prepared to answer questions and discuss their assignment.
- Students should bring notes, books, and any other resources provided by the instructor, as well as the assignment.
- Students should respect the tutors. They circulate to assist students as soon as possible. If a student is waiting for help, the student needs to work on something else until the tutor can assist.
