International Tutor Certification

The WaLC and MTC's tutor training program has been certified by the College Reading and Learning Association’s International Tutor Training Program Certification (ITTPC).

New tutors are trained via three courses:

  • USI 202: Introduction to Peer Tutoring
  • USI 302: Intermediate Peer Tutoring and Mentoring
  • USI 402: Leadership in Peer Tutoring

Three levels of certification are available for WaLC and MTC associates who complete the training classes. Tutors become eligible for Level I Tutor Certification following successful completion of USI 202 and 25 hours of actual tutoring time. Level II is awarded after completion of USI 302 and 25 additional hours of tutoring time. Level III is achieved following completion of USI 402 and an additional 25 hours of tutoring. Certified tutors are recognized each spring during the WaLC/MTC Tutor Certification and Awards Reception.

Topics covered in USI 202 include: assertive communication, andragogy/pedagogy, critical thinking and Socratic questioning skills, active learning, working with students with disabilities, and tutoring ethics.

The purpose and objectives of USI 202 are:

  • To promote the status of student peer tutors at Western by qualifying WaLC/MTC tutors for certification through the College Reading and Learning Association
  • To assist the learning and success of all WCU students by developing a competent, quality base of academic assistance
  • To assist faculty by preparing peer tutors to offer quality academic support outside of the classroom
  • To provide opportunities for tutors to develop their leadership abilities and to formulate goals for their personal learning and development

Tutors who have earned certification from the WaLC/MTC include:
