The goal of YVCC’s tutoring program is to foster independent learning. This is done by helping students develop and refine relevant cognitive and applied study skills to gain the knowledge necessary for better academic performance. Tutors focus on helping students exchange and pool information on course content and learn how to benefit from refining learning skills that lead to a broader knowledge base.
