Tutor Program Continues Growth, Reaches More Students Than Ever

Tutoring has become a great help for students especially during times when learning becomes too difficult. Luckily, there are always people like those at Bee Academic Tutoring who are there to help students out and the students, on their side, seemed to not mind the help. In fact, the number of students looking for tutorial services continues to increase.

The same thing is happening for Bryce Beatty and the tutor program he is with that is continuously growing, reaching out to more students than ever.
When Bryce was in high school, he was focused on chemistry, advanced placement physics, biology and honors, all the while playing for his high school basketball team.

That all changed, however, when he came to Grand Canyon University back in 2012. He no longer wore his jersey and mitts. Instead, he donned latex gloves and an apron. Bryce turned his attention solely to Biology, emphasizing on pre-med. But even with his outstanding science background back in high school, Bryce knew that he would still need to get a tutor in Chemistry because of his chosen career pursuit.

Upon his arrival, he immediately sought tutoring help from the Center for Learning and Advancement (CLA).

Now, Bryce is in his junior year and has also become one of GCU’s top science tutors. In fact, he helped the University leaders in the restructuring of the tutoring system and has greatly assisted in its success.

Last 2013, GCU established the Learning Lounge in Alhambra High, that used to be an underperforming school. It is an afterschool program meant to help students for free. It is a welcoming, safe and fun place where students can work on their skills in reading, writing and math. They could either be in a one-on-on or in a group setting alongside the tutors of GCU. Afterwards, the program was extended to other high schools like Phoenix Union High and the Alhambra Elementary School districts.

Dr. Joe Veres, the director of student development and outreach, says that the University wanted to establish personal connections with the students in a bright environment where students and tutors would also get to enjoy free snacks and drinks.
