Learning Commons earns certification
Learning Commons tutors provide expert help to students in a relaxed setting.

LEARNING COMMONS EARNS TUTORING CERTIFICATION

The Learning Commons earned a note of distinction this spring that enhances the tutoring services provided. The tutor training program received international certification from the College Reading and Learning Association, which is considered the "Cadillac" of credibility when it comes to tutor training.

According to Director Mark Nelson, the Learning Commons received certification for levels one through three. The distinction, which requires completing rigorous criteria, provides recognition and positive reinforcement for tutors' successful work and sets an internationally accepted standard of skill and training for tutors.

Among the benefits of being certified are improved professional development opportunities for the tutors, enhanced tutoring sessions for BGSU students, and recognition that the University is in a special category for the level of tutoring it provides, Nelson explained.
