Promoting Tutor Use

Without the support of MWCC faculty, the Academic Support Center would not be able to serve students as well as we do. We rely on faculty to provide a number of key services:

  • recommend qualified tutors
  • announce our services to classes
  • enable the “tutoring” link in Blackboard
  • bring classes to our center for a tour
  • arrange for someone from the center to visit classes

Hearing about the Academic Support Center from an instructor encourages students to explore the resources available to them. Below is a sample paragraph about the Academic Support Center that you could include on your syllabus.

 

Sample Description for Your Syllabus

The Academic Support Center is available to students for free. The most up-to-date information about options and services will always be posted at mwcc.edu/tutoring . Students can also email the Academic Support Center at asc@mwcc.mass.edu to request more information or a tutoring appointment.
