Quick facts

How will tutoring, academic coaching, and help sessions happen this semester (spring 2021)?

Tutoring, academic coaching, and help sessions will all be held virtually this semester over Microsoft Teams. To join a virtual help session, simply select the session you would like to join. You will be added to the group and tutors will be ready to answer any questions that you might have. For 1-1 tutoring and academic coaching, you will work with your tutor and/or coach over Microsoft Teams.

When can I sign up for a tutor and/or an academic coach?

The first day to request a tutor is the typically one week after the semester begins.

When is the last day to sign up for a tutor and/or an academic coach?

The last day to request a tutor is the same day as the last day to drop a class. Visit the calendar for specifics dates and relevant deadlines.

When will I be matched?

You will be matched with a tutor/coach within a week of submitting your request form.

How will I be notified?

You will be notified who your tutor/coach is and your weekly meeting time via your Calvin email.

Attendance

You are expected to attend every tutoring and coaching appointment for the duration of the semester. If you need to miss a week it is required that you email your coach or tutor at least 24 hours in advance, or it will count as an unexcused absence. Acquiring two unexcused absences will result in the termination of tutoring services and multiple excused absences will result in the termination of tutoring.
