Embedded Tutoring Opportunity

The Student Success Center (SSC) is eager to help students succeed academically by offering a direct connection to tutors with Embedded Tutoring. This method of tutoring provides faculty with an opportunity to embed a specialized and trained SSC tutor in their Brightspace/D2L course(s). The embedded tutor is familiar with the course content and a consistent academic resource available in-person and online. An encouraging advantage of Embedded Tutoring is location, as students’ tutoring needs are found conveniently in a Brightspace/D2L course. Thank you, and the SSC looks forward to assisting your students directly as Embedded Tutors.
