Free tutoring is available to help students develop study skills, 管理自己的时间, 保持组织, learn 和 review course material, develop written 和 critical thinking skills, 实践解决问题, 和 learn how to study "smarter" (not harder) in a differentiated, 多通道的方式. During the p和emic, all tutors are available online. If we resume any in-person service, we will post an update here.

You must be a currently registered West Valley student in order to receive free tutoring 和 access our resources in Canvas. 像这样, you will automatically be added to this shell every semester in which you're enrolled at West Valley.
We will assist you in improving your skills, gaining confidence in your abilities, 和 getting your questions answered. Our goal for you is to become empowered in your own abilities 和 to strengthen them as you work with others.
You must attend all of your classes. A tutor will not read the textbook for you, nor do your homework for you. Remember that your instructor is the final authority, 和 that the 导师不是指导者.
尽早、频繁地获得帮助. Studies show that students who get regular 援助 throughout the semester–rather than at the last minute–can significantly improve their grades.
Individual weekly 任命 are available on a limited basis 和 for students who qualify for additional accommodations (through DESP, bgi的&年代,三人). 如果你有预约， 你必须准时! If you arrive more than 15 minutes late or fail to cancel an appointment at least 24 hours in advance, it can count as a "NO-SHOW" (un-excused absence); after two no–shows, your weekly appointment may be cancelled. 请给维达Sabouri发邮件 维达.sabouriFREEWEST_VALLEY at least 24 hours ahead if you cannot make it to your appointment, or if you are running late.
Study Groups are an excellent way to improve comprehension of the class materials, 测试一个人的知识, 和 effectively collaborate with classmates, but are sometimes hard to create 和/or run: let us help! 导师知道如何获得 小组集中在材料上, 把彼此当作资源来利用, 要创建复习材料, 和 to effectively study 和 learn course material in an engaging, 有意义的, 和有趣的方式! If at least three students from a class need 援助, we can work with you to schedule a weekly appointment. Once your group is formed 和 you have mutually available times in mind, 请与珍·瓦格纳联系 珍妮花.wagnerFREEWEST_VALLEY 或者维达Sabouri 维达.sabouriFREEWEST_VALLEY to inquire about scheduling an appointment.
Please prepare for your tutoring session. Adequate preparation includes regular class attendance 和 bringing your textbook (along with your notes, 施舍, 和 questions) to the tutoring session.
We strive to meet as many students' needs as possible. 通常, this means that tutors may be working with other students during their drop-in hours 和 you may have to wait to receive help. Thanks in advance for your patience! If you have a complaint, please 电子邮件Jen瓦格纳 or 维达Sabouri.
Weekly schedules will be posted on our 导师安排 page. For a complete list of classes that will be supported in Fall 2021, please follow the link on the left-column menu. Once tutors are scheduled, their shifts will also appear there. More tutors 和 shifts will be added weekly through the middle of the semester, 所以请经常回来看看!
