Certified tutor

Joanna G. Potts, 19, of Salisbury, is one of 14 Southeastern University students who work as tutors in the Academic Assistance Center and was recently honored for becoming certified through the National Tutoring Association.

Potts is an English major at the university in Lakeland, Fla.

The certification recognizes the students as trained tutors equipped with the knowledge and skills to better assist the students who seek their services. The training process helped the tutors understand the differences in learning preferences and how to accommodate those preferences. They also learned methods of making students feel more comfortable with the tutoring process.
