Group Learning Support
During the 2020-2021 academic year, all tutoring sessions will be held online via Zoom. We look forward to resuming in-person tutoring sessions in Fall 2021.
In addition to one-on-one tutoring sessions, Tutoring Services two different types of group-based learning support:
- One-hour Weekly Learning Roundtables
- Two-hour Pre-Exam Study Groups
- The MCAT High-Yield Concepts Study Groups
For more information about each program, visit the pages linked above.
As per our Appointment Policies, group appointments can be scheduled via our online scheduler (WCOnline) up to 14 days in advance with a limit of one appointment per day and two hours of group appointment time per week in fall (three per week in spring).
These limits are independent of the number of individual tutoring appointments a student can schedule, and we encourage students to consider using both. That’s why Tutoring Services maintains separate WCOnline schedules for 1-on-1 and Group Study appointments, and students can easily switch between the one-on-one and group schedules from within our system.
Note that our Cancellation Policy for Group Sessions is more strict than for individual tutoring sessions, requiring that group cancellations be made at least four hours before the start of the session. Failure to cancel group appointments at least 4 hours in advance is subject to our Missed Appointment Policy.
The Waiting List Feature
Group sessions can fill up quickly, so plan ahead when you can (remember you can schedule 14 days in advance) and when you don’t see any openings keep in mind our scheduler’s waiting list feature, as well, to get notified about cancellations.
