About Us

Your success at Wilmington College is our priority. We aspire to enhance students’ reading, writing, and learning capabilities.

The SRC provides the following services:

  • Individual Peer Tutoring
  • The Math Center
  • The Quaker Writing Center
  • Supplemental Instruction
  • SRC Employment

The Quaker Writing Center offers a variety of appointment styles to best fit your needs when visiting. Find the type that’s best for you!

Real-Time: In-Person or via Zoom

  • These can be scheduled for either 30 minutes or 1 hour; it’s better to have more time for longer papers, but sometimes you just have a few questions and only need 30 minutes!
  • You can choose whether you’d like to meet with your tutor in person or over Zoom, and attaching your paper is optional (though recommended)!
  • Great for when you are working on getting started, need help with organization, or have specific questions that you want to go over!
  • Writing Assistants won’t just tell you what you need to fix–they’ll have a conversation about your writing and their ideas and recommendations.

Drop-Box: via Email

  • These are scheduled to give our writing assistants designated time to work on your paper–the time that you schedule will be when they send it back to you!
  • You attach your paper when you schedule the appointment, along with the assignment sheet, and receive feedback by the end of your scheduled time!
  • Great for when you just want an extra set of eyes checking your paper for readability and idea communication!
  • Writing Assistants won’t just fix everything for you and send it back–they’ll give you comments and suggestions for you to implement.

Individual Peer Tutoring

ROBINSON COMMUNICATION CENTER (RCC) 103

We understand that coursework can sometimes be challenging, and we are here to help! Whether it’s a simple question about course material or a test or quiz coming up, individual peer tutors can help you on your way to academic success. All our staff members are fellow students who’ve earned an A or B in the course they are tutoring for. Don’t see a tutor for the course that you are enrolled in? Please stop by the SRC, and we can help you!

Quaker Writing Center

Robinson Communication Center (RCC) 103

Quaker Writing Center (QWC) supports all Wilmington College writers throughout in the writing process. We are dedicated to helping students to become more effective and confident writers. We embrace Wilmington College’s core values of Diversity, Excellence, Integrity, Peace and Social Justice, Respect for All Persons, and Service and Civic Engagement to form an inclusive and constructive environment for all members of the WC community. Appointments can be scheduled on Acuity.

Writing Tutors prioritize giving writer’s feedback “global concerns” including:

  • thesis statement
  • organization
  • development and focus
  • ethical source integration, including in-text and Works Cited/References
  • identifying and correcting patterns of grammar and spelling error

Although some students do come to the QWC with questions concerning grammar and mechanics, please understand that editing and proofreading are not the primary concerns for the writing consultants. Writing assistants are tried to focus on global concerns and patterns of error. The writing assistants will provide students with the skills and strategies to recognize and resolve lower order concerns (e.g., punctuation, subject-verb agreement, fused syntax, ambiguous pronouns, comma splices, etc.).

Hours

Monday-Thursday | 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Friday | 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Sunday | 5 to 10 p.m. (virtual only)

Supplemental Instruction (SI)

Supplemental instruction is a group study session led by an experienced peer. SI Leaders will have earned an A or B in the courses they serve. SI Sessions are interactive, collaborative, and a great way to get to know people in your classes and go over material covered in class. SI Leaders prepare activities, lead discussions, and more to help students engage with course material and prepare for exams. SI sessions are once a week and generally in the evening hours.

FALL 2022 Schedule
