Western provides academic peer tutoring in the Tutoring Center, located in the Learning Resources Center, for students experiencing academic difficulty. As a general rule, tutors are students who have completed the course with an A or B, have been recommended by the course instructor, or excel in that particular subject area.
Peer tutoring is a free service to Western's students. Students may request a tutor in a variety of areas through the Director of Testing, Courtney Fortwengler. Please contact her at (580)-477-7973 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, although every effort is made to find a qualified tutor, it may not be possible to fill every request due to scheduling and qualifications.
Tutoring schedules will change every semester, as well as the tutors available. Currently we offer peer tutors in Anatomy, Biology, English Comp, Math (all), and Reading. Click here to check the Peer Tutoring page on Moodle for tutors schedule and for any schedule changes that may occur.
