The Academic Resource Center (formerly known as the Learning Skills Program) combines the talents of writing, math, and subject tutors into one central location: the Center for Student Success, located on the first floor of the Grafton Library on Mary Baldwin University’s Staunton, VA campus. Tutorials are usually one hour long, but shorter or longer sessions can be arranged.

Our Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences Graduate Tutoring program is located in the MDCHS campus in Fishersville, VA, about 15 minutes away from Staunton. There, in a state-of-the-art facility, senior graduate students help their first year peers navigate courses in the Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Physician Assistant programs.


Writing Center tutors come from a variety of curricular backgrounds, and among them, they have experience with all kinds of academic writing, from lab reports, to History research papers, to MA theses. They can also help students find and follow the rules for documentation styles required of college-level writing assignments.


The Subject Tutoring Program, which includes Math tutoring, employs our largest group of tutors with diverse majors and minors. These tutors can be matched up with students seeking help in particular subjects and can assist with home work, test prep, and general issues of studentship such as time management and study strategies.
