Most of you are probably familiar with an in-class tutor. You may think of an in-class tutor in more of the traditional model. The in-class tutor attends class with students on campus. When class is online, the tutor can attend your class whether synchronous or asynchronous. By embedding or adding a tutor to your online course, they will have access to your online course and materials. The embedded online tutor can be given opportunities to engage more with students and take on an “in-class” role while online. This might take the form of a discussion board or break out room where students can ask questions. There are plenty of options, so if you aren’t sure how to use a tutor within your online course, just email Jenny.Crones@heartland.edu for more information.
Faculty, this form provides a structured opportunity for you to support your students’ success through collaboration with Tutoring Services. All you have to do is print out our form and complete the top portion. Then, share the form with the student you are referring to our services. Finally, let the student know to complete the rest of the form before turning it back in to you after their tutoring session. If you have any questions, please reach out to Jenny Crones, Assistant Director of Tutoring Services.
