      3. Assist students in transitioning to the requirements of college

    • Writing Support and Tutoring

      The Kettering College Writing Center offers students the opportunity to work on various projects in one-on-one conferences with trained tutors. We offer these sessions both in our center and online via our scheduling service. Make an appointment below or come see us in person. We are located within the Academic Support Department.

      What we do:
      Our goals are for students to develop as writers and thinkers and to help with projects of all kinds including research papers, scholarship essays, medical/dental school application essays, resumes and cover letters, speeches and presentations, multimodal projects, and APA formatting. We are happy to help with these projects at any stage of the process including brainstorming, outlining, revision, or even practicing the timing and delivery of presentations.

      What we don’t do:
      We will not proofread your papers or correct your grammar/mechanics for you. Instead, we are here to help you learn how to improve your own writing. We will help identify areas that you could improve on, including grammatical errors, and help you understand how to make corrections on immediate and future writing tasks.

    • Student Success Coaching

      Success Coaches are assigned to all pre-program students at Kettering College. Success Coaches meet regularly with students to ensure a smooth transition into Kettering College and ongoing success into their program. Coaches focus on areas such as navigating the LMS, study strategies, life management, and holistic wellbeing.

      The role of the Coach is to be a sympathetic, compassionate resource for student support not covered by tutoring or advising. Our goal is to better serve our students by helping them get from pre-program to program students. Once a student is admitted into a program, they are assigned a program faculty advisor.
