Alice Bérubé is the Coordinator of L'ARC, the Collège's student resource centre providing this new service. "We want to give a feeling of confidence to students who need a bit more help with various subjects. Our goal is to provide a stronger foundation for those who need more support than is found in the classroom."
The Minimidis deal with various subjects, including reading, composition, organization and time management, chosen based on identified needs.
Student Marie Paule Elomo is very grateful for the new service and participates nearly every day.
"The Minimidis have helped reinforce what I'm learning at the Collège. I've been able to improve my grammar and to pick up all sorts of little tips." Marie Paule Elomo, student in the Administrative Assistant program.
At the L'ARC resource centre, students can work with a tutor, one-on-one or in a small group, to improve their reading, writing or math skills. Tutoring takes place at the centre in Wellington, remotely by videoconference or online over the Internet.
