About Us:

The Tutorial and Math Learning Centers offer a unique approach to academic intervention in that they are programs for the students, of the students and by the students. They are maintained by a part-time faculty coordinator and a student coordinator whose leadership and scholarship are well-established in the Vanguard community. Tutoring services are provided by Vanguard students who have shown exemplary ability to facilitate learning for their peers.

The strengths of the centers are flexed in the philosophy and operation of them. Students are viewed as one-of-a-kind learners with unique learning styles and individual needs. Center operation embraces the positive aspects of tutorial assistance. Rather than students feeling the stigma of needing academic assistance, they are encouraged to use the tutorial services in order to foster success in a class from the onset.

Mission Statement:

It is the mission of the Vanguard University Tutorial and Math Centers to promote academic excellence by providing support services to the undergraduate and Professional Studies (PS) students, including the Nursing Program and the Early Childhood Education programs. The Tutorial and Math Learning Centers endeavor to assist students by offering helpful study tips for their requested courses and providing students with resources that will help them excel at managing their time, as well as note- and test-taking. We are committed to integrating faith and learning in a Christ-centered environment by maintaining an encouraging and positive attitude towards each student while creating a Godly atmosphere within each tutorial session.
