The mission of the Western Nevada College Academic Skills Centers is to provide full academic support and community to students in the form of free tutoring and computer use with the intention of helping students become active and independent learners.
Services offered at each location:
- FREE tutoring: sample subjects include math, English, Spanish, American Sign Language, biology, and physics.
- Computer use: Students can use the computers to write English and other course papers.
- Workshops: The centers offer occasional workshops on study skills topics such as time management and finals week preparation.
Nevada students can now get free online tutoring in multiple subjects – from English and Spanish to math and chemistry thanks to a grant through the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) administered by the Nevada Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Drop-in tutoring is available at the Carson and Fallon Academic Skills Centers. To receive free drop-in tutoring, you must be a WNC student enrolled in the class for which you request a tutor. To register for tutoring, drop by the ASC, fill out a student information form, and obtain an access code from the ASC receptionist.
Appointment only tutoring is available at both the Carson and Fallon Academic Skills Centers. To make an appointment and for more details, please contact the Carson or Fallon Academic Skills Center.
