The scope of CAS Writing Tutoring

  • Our writing tutors are trained to read critically and to engage you in the process of developing and revising your writing. Our goals are to help you develop competence and confidence with your writing.
  • We are not simply a drop-off editing service. We will certainly discuss sentence-level issues and proofreading and editing strategies, but we believe students should make all final writing decisions.
  • We track all students who visit CAS with a summary report of their writing consultation. Reports can be e mailed to professors for verification and feedback upon request of the student.
  • Writing Consultants cannot predict or explain grades received on writing assignments. We encourage you to speak directly to your instructor if you have questions about grades or assignment assessments.

CAS Peer Tutoring

CAS Peer Tutors are undergraduate students who are trained to support students in specific areas. CAS primarily offers support in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, Engineering, and Religion. 

CAS Peer Tutors will work with you to examine areas where you need support and through critical questioning will help you to improve in your knowledge the subject area. Peer Tutors are not here to teach classroom content. It is expected that all students coming to a tutoring session will come prepared with their books, notes, and questions for the tutor. 

OUR LOCATION:

Peer Tutoring takes place in the Center for Academic Success on the ground floor of Nease Library.

Supplemental Instruction

In keeping with ENC’s defining values, ENC offers Supplemental Instruction for certain courses through the Center for Academic Success. The mission of CAS is to develop students into independent and active learners, helping them to realize their own potential to lead and serve in a diverse world. The CAS achieves this mission by providing services and resources including advising, tutoring, writing assistance and supplemental instruction. The Supplemental Instruction program utilizes students on campus who have excelled academically to help their fellow students achieve similar levels of success. 

The Supplemental Instruction program offers two 1-hour sessions per week, designed for students to get questions answered, learn helpful study skills, and receive focused instruction from a student leader who knows the material and is equipped to help. Keeping in mind that SI sessions are not designed to re-teach classroom material, students are encouraged to bring notes and assignments to sessions and ask specific questions based on the material they bring. The SI leader visits the class during the first couple of class sessions to introduce him or herself and survey the class to determine the best time to offer these sessions. Once sessions are scheduled, students must go to www.enc.mywconline.com and sign up for a session (Note: First-time users will have to register for an account using their ENC email address). There is a limit of 10 students per session, for a total of 20 students per week.
