Students having difficulty in a course in which ongoing peer tutoring is not available may request tutoring services through Academic Support Services. Academic Support coordinates a one-on-one tutoring program by connecting tutors with tutees.

This page contains information about how to access a tutor and how to become a tutor.

I NEED A TUTOR. WHAT DO I DO?

Schedule an Appointment with a Tutor Online

Appointments can now be scheduled online through Moodle. Be sure to read the names of the courses the tutor is qualified to tutor before scheduling with that tutor.

To schedule an appointment:

  1. Visit the Moodle website, http://moodle.warren-wilson.edu/ and log in.
  2. Click on the "Academic Support Services" link in the upper left hand corner above Placement Exams.
  3. Click on "Academic Tutorin" link.
  4. To enroll into the page, click the "Enroll Me" button.
  5. Once you're within the page, click on the Scheduler link for a tutor within the academic program listed.  Be sure to double check the courses that they tutor.
  6. Select a day / time that is offered by one of the tutors. click "Save My Choice".
  7. If you can't find an available tutor online, email academicsupport@warren-wilson.edu

NOTE: if you must cancel an appointment, cancel through Moodle so that someone else can take your available spot on the calendar. Also, to schedule multiple tutoring sessions, you must log out and log back in for each session.

Before Attending a Tutoring Session....

  • Don't wait until the last minute! Get help as soon as you know you need it.
  • Bring your materials: homework, books, notebooks etc.
  • Bring your questions or concerns: be clear about what you need help with.
  • Be prepared to do the work: the tutor is there to guide you, not do the work for you.

I WOULD LIKE TO TUTOR. WHAT DO I DO?

Tutoring Application Process

Tutors are paid a minimum wage through the Work Program Office (WPO) for up to 5 hours of tutoring per week above and beyond their 15 hour work week contract. Tutoring does not replace the weekly work agreement; it is an agreement outside of regular work crew hours. To become a tutor, please complete and submit the Tutor Application and either email it to academicsupport@warren-wilson.edu or drop it off with Judy Huber, Academic Support Services, in Dodge House.

What Happens Next?

Payment
To be paid, the WPO will be contacted through Academic Support of approved tutors. Tutors must then stop by the WPO, complete a paper time card, and confirm that your name is on the tutoring list. Tutors will receive a check from the WPO. It can be picked up either at the WPO or it can be sent to your campus mailbox. Payment is issued once a month. Check the WPO for dates. Please note: If tutoring a group of students, tutors are paid per hour, not per tutee.

Online Scheduler through Moodle

Appointments can now be scheduled online through Moodle. Once you are approved for tutoring, you will be enrolled and trained as an administrator within the Academic Tutoring page so that you can set up your own appointment calendar for tutoring.
