Thanks to a new certification, Amarillo Colleges will be able to expand their tutoring services.
The AVID Postsecondary Tutor-Center Certification helps teachers have a more student centered approach.
Nearly 50 tutors and supervisors received training during this certification process with a 6 step tutorial model based on the Socratic tutoring process.
College Officials say the certification not only ensures that their tutoring is up to speed but it increases expectations and ensures all centers are providing consistent and successful student support in a welcoming environment.
Amarillo College does offer free tutoring on all campuses as well as virtually.
