Online Tutoring and Academic Coaching
Strategies for Online Courses
Tutoring helps students learn course material for a specific class. Tutors provide students with clarification of course concepts and practice with course materials in an informal self-paced and self-directed learning environment. A tutor’s job is to help students become an independent learner, not to do the student’s homework! Tutors help students understand basic class concepts by asking lots of questions until the student discovers the answer on his or her own. Please read the directions on how to schedule appointments through Starfish.
IF THERE IS NO TUTOR AVAILABLE FOR YOUR COURSE PLEASE CONSIDER MEETING WITH AN ACADEMIC
Academic Coaching & Study Strategy Workshops
Academic coaching helps students discover how to learn! An academic coach works individually with students to examine their academic concerns and perceived barriers to success in school. These coaches provide support in areas such as transitioning to online classes, time management, overcoming procrastination, effective textbook reading, note taking skills, and test taking study strategies. Use Starfish to schedule your appointment.
