Normally after midterms we get an uptick in interest in the Learning Assistance Center and Disability Services, which offers free peer tutoring to students. Because this has been of interest, I asked Laura Denlinger, the Tutor Coordinator in the LAC, to share information about how students can get a tutor. Here is what she told me:
We have moved our tutoring process online this year. Students will need to head to our schedule and first make an account. Once they have an account, students can log in, select their subject, and find a tutor based on their availability. Students can click on any white box and book an appointment.
Some items to keep in mind:
– Students need to book an appointment each time they’d like to meet with a tutor.
– They can schedule appointments 3-14 days in advance.
– If they need to cancel their appointment, they can do so directly on the schedule 20 hours+ out from their appointment. If it’s after 20 hours, they can reach out to me and I can assist.
– Students can have 2 hour-long appointments per week/per subject.
– If a subject is not listed, students can reach out to me. I am always on the lookout for tutors to fill in needed subjects.
Hope this will be of help to some Deacs.
Finally, a thank you to one of our Daily Deac Dads, who wrote about my post about the leaves earlier this week, saying the leaves are late and muted because of all the rain we have had this year. Just in case we don’t get the normal fall splendor, I am going to post one of my favorite photos from recent years. When the leaves are at their best, Mother So Dear looks pretty fab.
