Wesley’s peer tutoring program strives to assist all Wesley students in achieving academic excellence through individualized tutoring. Tutors will train to achieve this goal through several tutor development opportunities. By providing a comfortable, supportive environment, students are encouraged to learn on their own or through one-on-one tutoring sessions.
Who are tutors?
Our extensive peer tutoring program includes 35-40 peer tutors who cover a wide spectrum of academic courses. Tutors are Wesley students who excel in their subject, are recommended by faculty, maintain a high overall GPA and are hired and trained through a series of workshops by professional staff members.
All tutors receive training in current tutoring strategies, metacognition, and learning styles. Tutors achieve international certification from the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) by completing their training
*Writing Tutors are students who excel in writing, are recommended by faculty, and maintain a required overall GPA. After each session with a student, the peer tutors provide written feedback to each student’s professor.
Trained to assist students to improve their writing skills not just English but in all courses, Writing tutors complete a course, EN201, in preparation for their work as a tutor. After completion of training, writing tutors are eligible for certification by the international College Reading and Learning Center (CRLA).

In addition to offering a place for students to write, conduct research and receive peer tutoring, the Wesley College Academic Computer Lab (ACL) is designed to support classes with an emphasis on writing. Our technology-equipped classroom of 18 computers, (located in Parker Library, room 12) features an overhead projector and laptop available for instructor use.
