Individual or small group peer tutoring sessions are free and available for many courses at Carthage. From Biology to Spanish, trained peer tutors are ready to work with you.
We offer one-on-one peer tutoring for a variety of Carthage courses. You can schedule a 30 or 60-minute session to meet your unique needs. Please visit carthage.mywconline.com for our Fall tutoring schedule.
Some tutors offer regular or occasional group tutoring sessions when students enrolled in the same course can work on material and study concepts together. Creating your WCOnline account and signing up in advance will save you time during the session. You will be able to sign in on WCOnline when you arrive, but please be aware that we will only be able to accommodate a limited number of students, based on the room capacity, during in-person sessions.
Some tutors offer drop-in hours when you can stop-by, do your homework in their company, and ask questions as they arise. There were often be multiple students there doing the same so you so you may have to wait as the tutor circulates and helps others. If it is busy, using WCOnline to enter the queue can help the tutor manage their time and help you get help faster.
Some instructors will invite tutors into the classroom to work with students during class work time. This is an excellent way for you to get to know your tutor and learn more about how tutoring works. We highly recommend you talk to your tutor when they visit your class.
