Tutoring and Learning Center (TLC)
The purpose of the TLC at WWCC is to provide a comfortable, quality, learning environment. Tutoring services are offered free of charge to all currently enrolled WWCC students. We help with mathematics, science, writing, and study skills while encouraging student independence and responsibility. The center is staffed primarily with trained peer tutors who have excelled in their own classes.
Many students find the most successful way to use the TLC for Math and Science is on a regular basis as an addition to their classroom experience. They find that completing their homework in the center serves the dual purpose of getting the work done and having their questions answered by a knowledgeable tutor.
In writing, we believe there are no bad papers - just writers who have not yet found the right voice. We offer support and advice while guiding students to writing self-sufficiency.
On the Walla Walla campus, the Tutoring and Learning Center is located on the second floor of the main building in room 244. The center is open Monday through Thursday, with tutors available as follows:
