Concordia has partnered with TutorMe to provide an around-the-clock accessible outlet for undergraduate and graduate students to receive tutoring services in more than 300 subjects.
TutorMe gives students confidential access to one-on-one tutoring and writing support.
“For live help in subject areas, students are matched with tutors in a matter of minutes. Students also have the ability to go back and review sessions to see if they missed anything,” said Matt Myers, English as a Second Language & tutor coordinator at Concordia.
Since launching in 2015,TutorMe has become one of the fastest-growing tutoring providers in the country. It works with hundreds of educational partners to help students receive inclusive learning. It received great reviews from Concordia graduate students who used it in the spring.
“I’ve been gratified to inform my advisees about it and see the relief on many of their faces as I assure them that they will not be without help and support during their program(s),” said Joey Nolting, assistant director of Graduate/Adult Student Success Advising.
“Some students may prefer this [online] format, as it is more private and anonymous, and they may also be more confident and productive in a virtual environment,” said Sue Showers, CUNE’s Academic Resource Center & Disability Support Services coordinator.
TutorMe accessibility features include screen readers, screen magnification applications, and compatibility with accessibility features provided in major browsers, such as color changing and zoom control. It should appear inside students’ class information tab, but students can also reach out to The Academic Resource Center with any questions.
The Academic Resource Center can also help students search for one-on-one assistance in areas such as planning, scheduling, study skills, test preparation, note taking, organization, problem-solving, time management and advice on goal setting.
