  • What is an Embedded Tutor?

    "An embedded tutor is one who is assigned to work with a specific class either in the classroom, online, or in a support capacity only.  In these instances, tutors have access to all the course materials and work with the instructor to provide support necessary for each student to achieve success." - Stephanie Walden, Master Tutor.
