Tutoring or remedial services are not required by either the Americans with Disabilities Act or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. However, Westminster College does have peer tutoring available.
Mrs. Sally Huey directs the Learning Center, which is located on the second floor of Thompson-Clark. If you would like tutoring in a specific subject, help with a paper, some ideas of how to improve your reading, or some help with study skills, this is the place to go! Tutors are selected from students who have high grades and have been recommended by their department heads.
Education Assistants Program
Mrs. Van Bruggen supervises education majors who are gaining experience in tutoring or academic coaching by volunteering their time to the Office of Disability Support Service. These education majors (called Education Assistants) will help you study for specific classes, organize your schedule, plan a paper or project, prepare for an exam, or read text and help locate the main ideas. Education Assistants will also provide mobility assistance, reading for students with vision impairment or dyslexia, or may help proctor exams or take notes.
Because these students are volunteering their time, but must complete 10 hours of tutoring services to meet education department requirements, it is VERY IMPORTANT that you keep your appointments with your tutor. It is also important that you request the assistance before all of the students have been assigned and there are no more volunteers left to help you.
