Tutoring

Copy of TUNGSHT-HC2007  1812.jpgThe program connects vested student tutors with students who need assistance with course material for any of a number of courses. The coordinator works with faculty to identify and train students in the capacity of tutor in an ongoing manner. Student-tutors undergo an orientation course as training before being linked with students needing assistance.

Tutoring services are delivered in the following formats to meet the various needs of students:

  • Traditional one-on-one tutoring
  • Lab tutoring, in which the tutor is available during regularly scheduled lab hours to provide assistance in cooperation with the instructor
  • Group tutoring
  • Drop-in tutoring

In addition, students who have special needs as identified by the instructor can be designated as a reader or note-taker by the Academic Tutoring Program. For more information about obtaining a tutor, please contact us.

TRIO Program

The Federal TRIO Programs (TRIO) are college and student services programs designed to identify and provide services for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. TRIO includes eight programs targeted to serve and assist low-income individuals, first-generation college students, and individuals with disabilities to progress through the academic pipeline from middle school to post baccalaureate programs.

Hocking College is fortunate enough to house two of these programs Student Support Services (SSS) and Talent Search (TS).

TRIO (SSS)

The Student Support Services (SSS) program is a federally funded TRIO program at Hocking College designed to encourage first-generation and low-income students to achieve. The program helps students develop the skills and motivation necessary to successfully complete a college education. The goal of TRIO(SSS) is to increase the retention, graduation and transfer rates of participants and to foster an institutional climate that is supportive of success.

TRIO (Talent Search)

Talent Search is a federally funded TRIO program designed to assist middle school and high school students with the necessary understanding, knowledge, skills and self-esteem to continue in and graduate from high school. The Talent Search program also helps students that have been traditionally underrepresented to explore training and educational options, and enroll in post secondary institutions.

Who is Eligible?

The Talent Search program is available to eligible students in grades 7-12. Teachers, parents or counselors may refer students; however, a referral is not necessary to apply for the program.

Individuals are eligible if they meet one or both of the following guidelines:

  • Potential first-generation college student (neither parent graduated from a four year college)
  • Income eligible

Students must also meet federal requirements for citizenship eligibility.

The goal of Talent Search is to increase the number of youth from disadvantaged backgrounds who complete high school and enroll in the post secondary education institution of their choice.
