Tutoring Center and Open Lab

The Tutoring Center and Open Lab is a crucial component to the Wiregrass mission. We offer students, staff, and faculty learning support resources for study, an open access computer lab, and areas for project collaboration or to hold meetings in small-group study. Math tutors help students build math and reasoning skills at all levels. English tutoring offer assistance for English language writing, research, and critical reading skills. Computer tutors also assist in an introduction to fundamental computer concepts and operation, including file management, word processing, and database software, among others. One-on-one academic coaching helps students develop effective academic skills and contributes to student success.

Tutors

Tutors are available to meet one-on-one with students to assist them with their particular academic needs. These tutors are well versed in various task in and out of the classroom and can help students succeed in their own individual efforts. Students can rely on tutors to read papers, offer suggestions, and support with general competencies needed for their classes. Working in conjunction with professors, tutors are able to facilitate learning paths that work for each individual student. If you are unable to meet with a face-to-face tutor, online tutoring is also available through Tutor.com. Tutor.com allows you to meet online, one-on-one with a tutor 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For additional information concerning online tutoring with Tutor.com, or to schedule a one-on-one tutor, call 229-333-2100 ext.2463 or visit the Tutoring Center Center in Room 350.

Facilities

The Tutoring Center has accommodations for small and individual study. In lab Materials support the various programs and classes at Wiregrass: computers, printers and information packets address particular academic skills while others reference online resources.

ACCUPLACER Test Prep Sessions

All students applying to Wiregrass Georgia Technical College must be assessed prior to acceptance to a program of study. While Wiregrass Georgia Technical College is committed to ensuring that our students possess the requisite skills to reach their various career goals, our Tutoring Center assists in preparing students for the mandatory ACCUPLACER placement exam which assesses students’ math and language skills necessary to succeed in these various occupational programs. Test results determine each students’ academic placement according to admission policies.
