Faculty Resources

The Academic Success Center is committed to helping YCP faculty promote and support academic success for their students. We offer several services to support faculty, including presentations, workshops, and an assignment prompt review service. The ASC also coordinates with faculty to hire the peer tutors who will work with students in your classes.

YCP Faculty and the Academic Success CenterCollaboration Opportunities

Let's work together to support York College students.
  • Tutor Recommendations

    Tutor Recommendations

    We rely on faculty recommendations/endorsements to help us hire excellent students to serve as peer tutors. If you have worked with a student that you think would make a strong peer tutor based on their knowledge of course materials and ability to communicate effectively with others, use the Tutor Recommendation Form to share recommendations with the ASC.

  • Presentations and Workshops

    Presentations and Workshops

    We offer support for faculty by conducting in-class presentations and workshops. These could be short, simple presentations about the services the Academic Success Center provides to make sure students know how to connect with available resources—or we can lead workshops related to academic coaching or writing-related topics including:

    • Time management
    • Note taking
    • Exam preparation strategies
    • Reading and synthesizing scholarly sources
    • Developing effective thesis statements
    • Citations (MLA, APA, Chicago)
    • Creating effective research posters
    • Peer Review
  • Assignment Prompt Review Services

    Assignment Prompt Review Services

    Would you like to get a student's perspective on a new or revised assignment you're planning for your class? Consider using our Assignment Prompt Review service, in which a Writing Tutor will review an assignment sheet and complete a review worksheet answering questions about how they understand the purpose and requirements of the assignment, as well as any questions or confusion they have.

    Academic Success Center and Writing & Communication Studio

    Students are encouraged to enhance their learning by meeting with the tutors and academic coaches in the Academic Success Center.

    The Academic Success Center (ASC) is a student-focused space providing free academic support programming to all York College undergraduates. The ASC helps students reach their educational goals through tutoring services, academic coaching, and supplemental instruction. In the ASC, students can schedule one-on-one appointments and/or attend review sessions with a math tutor.  Students can also consult with our Academic Coaches, learning about strategies they can use to enhance their study skills. Peer tutors, recommended by professors of select courses, meet with students daily to explain concepts and support their academics.

    The ASC is open weekdays and evenings when classes are in session. An appointment system and a listing of drop-in hours and available tutors are accessible online. The ASC is in HUM01.

    The Writing & Communication Studio (WCS) offers support for students working on writing for any class or personal or professional purposes. Appointments are available with a peer or experienced tutors both in person or via Zoom. The WCS also offers asynchronous online appointments through the Drop-Off Essay Review service. In addition, the WCS offers workshops and quiet space to get your writing done.
