Tutor Connection

Group study

Getting a tutor is WISE.

Tutor Connection

The program seeks to promote independent learning that students may use throughout their academic careers. Tutors are qualified individuals who possess proven academic backgrounds, foster strong study habits, and are endorsed by faculty. All tutoring services are provided free of cost to students enrolled in courses offered by the College.

Tutor Connection is located on the first floor of Zehmer Hall beside the Writing Center. UVa-Wise students in need of tutoring can schedule a session via UVa-Wise Tutor Connection Online (click here).  Walk-in Tutoring is offered for select subjects, please visit our center for more information!

Hours of operation are  Monday – Thursday: 8am – 5pm, Friday: 8am-5pm. Except for designated holidays, the Tutor Connection is open year round. Summer hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Small Group Tutoring

This most common form of tutoring is for students who enjoy learning from and interacting with other students. Groups meet regularly and consist of 2 to 4 students who are enrolled in the same course.

Walk-in Tutoring

No appointment necessary. Visit our center for more information. Subjects are limited.


Peer Assisted Study Sessions are weekly review sessions led by trained peers who have experience with the courses. The PASS Leaders attend courses with the students in the session. The sessions combine specific lecture material with study skills and test strategies. Current courses for PASS are General Chemistry I & II.
