Fort Valley State University Launches Major New Tutoring Program

Historically Black Fort Valley State University in Georgia has announced a transformative partnership with Knack Tutoring. Through this collaboration, students enrolled in any course will gain access to free on-demand tutoring services.

Prospective peer tutors will receive comprehensive training endorsed by the College Reading and Learning Association. The collaboration will also grant students access to a network of on-demand professional tutors. This dual support system aims to address the diverse academic needs of FVSU students, ensuring they receive timely help when they need it the most.

A significant portion of the funding dedicated to Knack Tutoring goes directly back to students through tutor payments. This not only enhances the professional development opportunities for university students but also contributes to on-campus economic development.

“This new and exciting partnership will provide our students with virtual and face-to-face support, which is critical to the overall success of our scholars,” said Timothy L. Hatchett, vice president of student affairs and enrollment management. “Our strategic plan is specific as we are focused on increasing our student retention, engagement, and success. We are confident Knack Tutoring will assist us in reaching our goals.”

“This service will play a pivotal role in delivering crucial support to our students when they need it most,” added Olufunke A. Fontenot, provost and vice president of academic affairs. “We truly believe that academic success is bolstered by supporting student progression and completion, and this partnership will greatly contribute towards accomplishing these goals.”
