WE ARE HERE TO HELP
The Student Success Center, located in the Winchester Center, provides many services to all Kentucky Wesleyan students including peer tutoring, study sessions, and writing, reading, and study skills assistance. One great thing about going to a small school like Kentucky Wesleyan is the amount of individual help students can get with classes. First of all, professors can offer answers to questions students have. They are here to help and can get students on the right track. Sometimes, though, students decide they need even more help, especially in the evenings and during the weekend. That’s where the Student Success Center can help. The Student Success Center offers the following academic services:
The Student Success Center hires and trains supplemental instructors (SI) for several classes. These SI’s are students who took the class, did well in the class, and are recommended by the professor of the class. The SI’s work closely with the professors, can lead weekly study sessions, help students study for exams, and prepare students for upcoming lectures.
Sometimes students need to meet one-on-one with a tutor. The Student Success Center hires upperclassmen who have excelled in a course, are recommended by a faculty member, and are usually majors in that discipline, to tutor students in many different subjects. Peer tutors take drop-in appointments, and the daily schedule of who is tutoring when and in what subject is emailed to students every morning, and always posted on a sign outside of the Student Success Center.
