    Writing Center

    Writing essays, designing websites, giving presentations--college students from all majors are constantly composing. All these forms of writing are vital ways in which students learn, share what they've learned, and develop their communication skills as future professionals.

    The Writing Center supports how all forms of writing are taught and learned at York College. We seek to provide space, services, and programming to cultivate a community of writers across the campus and work to encourage both students and tutors to continually grow as writers.

    Interested in being a math tutor?

    Students who want to tutor mathematics need a recommendation from a professor with whom they've taken a YCP calculus course. Students must also be in good academic standing with an overall GPA of at least 3.2.

    It’s also strongly recommended that math tutors take the course MAT210, Teaching Basic Math Skills, a 3-credit course offered each spring. This course reviews math content most often tutored in the Academic Support Center and introduces future math teachers to research-based best practices in the field. If a student is unable to fit MAT210 into his or her schedule, exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis. 

    To be a Math Tutor students must apply for the position of Peer Tutor on the Spartan Career Path.

    Interested in being a content tutor?

    To be considered for a position as a content tutor you must have successfully completed the course you wish to tutor and have a recommendation from your professor to tutor that course. In addition, you must apply on the Spartan Career Path.

    Recommendations should be sent to Barb Zmolek at bzmolek@ycp.edu or call 717.815.6598.
