The goal of Instructional Support is to provide students with the skills, resources, and experiences needed to succeed in college. Under the guidance of Rhonda Torres, Dean of Teacher Education / Instructional Support and Beverly Gibbs, Manager of the Academic Support Center, our area continues to grow to meet the needs of an ever-increasing student population at Weatherford College.
The Academic Support Center, located on the lower level of the Liberal Arts building, is a lab where students come to receive help in completing homework assignments. Computers are provided with current Microsoft Office software to allow students to complete word processing, spreadsheet, database and PowerPoint assignments. Math coaches are on site during all open hours and tutors for Chemistry, Physics, Anatomy & Physiology (A&P), Spanish, History and other subjects are also available on a limited basis.
The Academic Support Center offers study strategy inventories that help students determine their own learning styles and provide techniques for improving study habits. Workshops are available to help students improve study skills and prepare for admissions assessments such as the Accuplacer, TSI, TEAS and HESI. Stop by the Academic Support Center and see what we can do to help you succeed.
