Academic Skills Center
March 19, 2020 UPDATE
Beginning Monday, March 23rd, 2020, the Academic Skills Center (ASC) will transition to online tutoring until further notice. This service is comparable to face-to-face tutoring and available through Google Meet. We are happy to help any curriculum student attending WCC through the challenges of his or her classes. Tutoring sessions are conducted with chat, voice, and video.
For students seeking support from the ASC, Writing Center, Math SI, and/or Accounting/Business Labs:
- Create a Google Plus account if you do not already have one. You must use your WCC student email. (The student email provided by WCC is a Google account you will have to upgrade to a Google Plus account. The upgrade is free. To upgrade to google+, click on the nine squares in the upper right hand corner in your WCC student Gmail and click on the Google+ icon, then follow the instructions.)
- Log in to Moodle.
- Click “Ask Billy” and then go to “Tutor Forum.”
- In the Tutor Forum, you will see the list of available tutors, the subject(s) they tutor, and their availability. Click on the tutor to access their Meet link.
Instructions and available tutors are available through Moodle.
If you have any questions, issues, or concerns, please email the ASC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your understanding and patience; we look forward to “seeing” you in this new virtual environment!
