Peer tutoring is available on a "drop-in" basis to all Pierpont Community & Technical College/Fairmont State University students through the Tutorial Services Center. All full-time and part-time students are entitled to free tutoring. Students with documented disabilities may be eligible for additional support services.
Students are encouraged to request tutoring for extra academic support and especially if they are in danger of failing a class. Each semester, peer tutoring is available for most basic required courses and for a variety of other courses. The center has individual tutoring areas equipped with dry boards, desks, and computers.
Students in good academic standing (sophomores, juniors, seniors) who would like to serve as paid "peer tutors" must complete an application, take a free, one-hour tutor training practicum online course, complete other required training, and meet established criteria and standards to qualify as a tutor.
The Peer Tutorial Services program is certified by the College Reading & Learning Association (CRLA). For information, check the Peer Tutoring Schedule located on the Tutorial Services website page or contact the Director of Tutorial Services in the Library, 2nd Level at 304-367-4081.
