One-on-one peer tutoring, when available, is a FREE service provided to any WPCC curriculum student.  Students may request a peer tutor in any subject in which they are having difficulty. You may view current peer tutors and subjects by clicking on the “Meet Your Peer Tutors” tab below.  If you do not see a peer tutor in your subject, you can still request a peer tutor, just choose the *other option on the request form. Applications to request peer tutoring are available in the ASC or online (see “Peer Tutor Request Form” below).  Assigning a student a peer tutor is not a guarantee and depends on schedules and skills of current students who have been approved to be a peer tutor.  Please contact Melissa Hartley at (828) 448-6404 in the Academic Success Center for more information.

Peer Tutor Request Form
  • Peer Tutoring Information Sheet

  • You are eligible to use the Academic Success Center for our free peer tutoring services if you are a registered student at Western Piedmont Community College and your instructor has signed the Peer Tutor Program Recommendation Form. Depending on the subject and current peer tutor availability, it may take up to two weeks to find a tutor that can meet with you. Please be patient.

    Here’s what you need to know for peer tutoring:
    • Peer tutoring is one-on-one tutoring with a student who has had the course requested and has received either an “A” or “B.”
    • Peer tutoring is set up on a regular schedule based on available hours you request and the hours the designated peer tutor can meet with you.
    • Peer tutoring will take place in the ASC during your scheduled times unless otherwise approved and notified.
    • Peer tutoring is a way to assist you with a variety of things such as clarifying textbook material, discussing ideas, practicing problems or concepts, reviewing for exams providing study techniques or even test taking strategies.

    Here’s what peer tutoring is not:
    • Peer tutoring is not a chance to get someone to complete your homework or assignments.
    • Peer tutoring is not on a walk-in basis. Make your best effort to attend your schedule meetings.
    • Peer tutoring is not a substitute for class time. Do not attend peer tutoring when you are scheduled to be in class.

    Other Important Information:
    • If you cannot come to a scheduled tutoring session, you need to cancel by calling your peer tutor or the Academic Success Center and letting them know. Failure to do so may result in a “No Show” which will be discussed with you during your first scheduled meeting.
    • If you no longer need tutoring services please let the peer tutor coordinator know.
    • If you do not wish to continue your current tutoring sessions for any reason, please let the peer tutor coordinator know. Peer tutors and tutees have the right to end tutoring sessions without giving a reason to anyone but the peer tutor coordinator. If a new peer tutor is requested, we will make every effort to find one for you.
