Tutor.com - Faculty Information

Tutor.com is a new online tutoring service launching this summer for students across the Minnesota State system, including SMSU. We have partnered with Tutor.com to offer 24/7 online tutoring, which will connect students with an expert tutor for extra assistance one-on-one. Online tutoring services can be accessed from any internet-enabled device through the main page in D2L and your course page.  

As an instructor, you will have access to dashboards which will help inform you of student usage of tutoring in your course and identify potentially struggling students who could use extra help. You can access a reference guide for using the faculty dashboard for Tutor.com here.

Please note: Numerous faculty orientation webinars will be held throughout late summer / early fall and can be found here: https://register.gotowebinar.com/rt/8484987698483865346  All sessions will be recorded.

We also encourage you to promote the service with your students in course announcements and materials such as your syllabus. You are welcome to use the example below.
