The Peer Tutor Center provides tutoring services for Western Wyoming Community College Students and is certified through the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA).  The service is free and available to all WWCC students.

The Peer Tutor Center is located on the Rock Springs Campus in room 2006 and is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Tutoring is done by appointment or students may drop in and ask for help. Tutors also work in the Learning Center math lab and as Conversation Partners for international students.

The Peer Tutor Center recruits tutors from the student body each semester.  Tutors are paid through the center to provide tutoring services.  The criteria for becoming a tutor in the Peer Tutor Center are:

bulletThe applicant must have taken the class they want to tutor in and successfully passed it with at least a "B".
bulletThe applicant must be recommended by an instructor.
bulletThe applicant's overall GPA must be at least a 3.0
bulletThe applicant must attend required training

Each semester, tutors are given the opportunity to participate in a Tutor Training Internship.  This one credit internship provides training in tutoring techniques, weekly discussion on tutoring issues and certification as a CRLA Tutor.  This certification is transferable to other institutions with a CRLA Tutoring program.
