Tutoring Center

The mission of the Manassas Campus Tutoring Center is to provide academic support to meet the needs of a growing and diverse population of adult learners. We provide a learning environment for our students which includes highly effective coaching, personalization of instruction, and confidence building measures to become more independent learners.

The NOVA Manassas Campus Tutoring Center provides students with additional assistance with class work and assigned papers. Peer, staff and volunteer tutors work one-on-one and in small groups to assist students with written assignments, class concepts and exam preparation.

For more information about our center, as well as tutor availability and special events, please see our blog.
