Your interest in pursuing tutoring at PNWU is a great step toward increased academic development. At PNWU we strive daily to provide the very best academic offerings and enrichment to our students. All students need some sort of academic support, and there are times when it is desirable that the support come through more formal channels, such as tutoring.
Your application to seek tutoring is valued by the University and we are committed to connect you to tutors who will assist you in a structured, organized, and timely manner. Based on this philosophy we ask that you read, fill-out and agree to the following premises of the PNWU near-peer tutoring program.
Please note that most third- and fourth-year students are located outside the Yakima area, so this tutoring is likely to occur remotely. This means you and your tutor will use some sort of videoconferencing platform, phone, email, text, or chat to hold your sessions. All PNWU students have access to Skype for Business. If you installed Microsoft Suite through PNWU, you already have Skype on your computer. If you did not install Microsoft Suite through PNWU, you can still install Skype for Business. Of course, you are welcome to use any other platform that works for all concerned.
