Meet the Tutors
Candace Wright
New Martinsville Campus

Schedule a tutoring appointment with Candace!
1. How long have you been a tutor at WVNCC?
I started as a tutor in 2010. I have also worked as a Teaching Assistant and now the Lead Tutor. So I have been with WVNCC for almost 12 years altogether.

2. What subject do you tutor students in?
Math 101, 109, 115 History 110, 111 Blackboard Study Skills

3. What is your favorite subject to teach and why?
Math. I have always loved math, which I know is normally an unpopular opinion. Most students come to me saying "I hate math!" or "I just can't get it no matter how hard I try!" My goal is for them to finish the semester saying, "Math isn't that bad after all!" I love taking something that I enjoy and helping someone who struggles with it better understand it and maybe even begin to like it a little bit.

4.) What advice would you give a student who might be thinking about getting a tutor?
DO IT! We are not scary! I know making that initial appointment can be intimidating but I promise you, we just want to help you succeed! I have found many times that once students get over the nervousness of the first appointment, they actually look forward to tutoring sessions!

5.) What are the best ways for students to contact you for an appointment?
Call me at 304-510-8760 
Email me at cwright1@wvncc.edu 
Or use my scheduling link to set up an appointment https://calendly.com/cwright1
Library Tips!
  1. When in doubt... ASK! Never be afraid to ask for help.
  2. Keep your email & password in a safe place so you can access your email from anywhere.
  3. Always bring your ID. (P.S. We have free keychain ID holders in the ASC and Library!)
  4. If you plan to do your research project in the library, give us a shout and we can set up a space for you. You may also email us in advance, at library@wvncc.edu and we can pull resources that will aid your search of topics.
