Over the past few years, the Tinsley Learning Center has been rebranding and changing the face of tutoring. These changes range from the 2020 update to the recently introduced training programs.
According to Assistant Principal Marie Bernard, “For many students, tutoring has a negative connotation. For some people this is not the case and it is a positive experience. Often our students were very hesitant to come here because it was a lesson and they felt inadequate. ”
The Tinsley Learning Center has become an more open learning environment. By changing the name of the tutoring process to training sessions, students become more open to rebranded learning.
Tutoring at the Learning Center is not only to help students in specific classes – students can also learn different teaching methods. The new programs include “TGIF at the Tins”, “Tinsley Toolbox” Encryption Program and PASS (peer learning sessions).
«Tinsley Toolbox marking program”Is designed to help students learn at their own pace. Instead of going to Tinsley in person, students can learn tips on studying through Moodle.
PASS allows students to study freely with friends and other classmates, as well as have a tutor if they have questions.
Martha Chairescommunication science and minor disorders, said, “I feel like I can influence other students and allow them to explore their options while studying. I help with things like contacting professors, discussing topics they are uncomfortable with. . “
Teachers in Tinsley are there to try to help students understand the material. Sophie Sundar, a sophomore in nursing, is an additional 241 math teacher. She said in a previous session that several students were confused about the material.
