Catalog and Student Handbook

Germanna students have access to numerous academic support programs through Tutoring Services. Students may schedule individual or group tutoring appointments by calling the Locust Grove Tutoring Center at (540) 423-9148 or the Fredericksburg Tutoring Center at (540) 891-3017. Students can also submit online requests for tutoring appointments directly from the Tutoring Services’ website.

Students at the Daniel Technology Center or the Stafford County Center are welcome to seek tutoring at either the Fredericksburg or Locust Grove Tutoring Center; however, they also have the option to engage in “live” tutoring sessions via Blackboard Collaborate. Students may call either Tutoring Center to schedule an appointment.

Registered students have access to online tutoring during day, evening, and weekend hours by logging in to Smarthinking from the Tutoring Services’ website. Students have the option of engaging in “live” online sessions, pre-scheduled sessions, or they may submit writing assignments to the Essay Center for review by online tutors. Numerous academic resources and study skill guides are also available within Smarthinking.

Walk-in Math tutoring is available to students on a daily basis within Tutoring Services’ Math Centers at the Fredericksburg and Locust Grove Campuses. Students who wish to obtain assistance with writing assignments can visit Tutoring Services’ Writing Center or attend one of the daily Writing Lab sessions at the Locust Grove Tutoring Center. The specific hours and locations are listed on the Tutoring Services’ website.

Students may also contact either Tutoring Center to register for a variety of academic tutorials and study skills workshops throughout the year. The location and dates for these workshops may be viewed by clicking on the “On Campus Workshops” page of the Tutoring Services’ website. The majority of these workshops may also be viewed in video format by entering the “Online Workshops” page.

Supplemental academic materials are available free of charge from our offices, and they may also be downloaded from the Tutoring Services’ website: www.germanna.edu/tutor/. Students may also find numerous links to reputable academic websites here.
