Presented by: Student Success Team

Series: Keeping Engaging

This panel features undergraduate tutors from a variety of campuses and majors sharing recent innovations and best practices as they provide academic support to their peers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Questions they will address include the following: What subjects do you tutor, and how long have you been tutoring? What kinds of help are students requesting this semester? If you tutored before COVID-19, has your practice changed significantly since the pandemic began, and if so, how? What innovations have you tried out and with what results? Where do you find your best ideas? Based on your experience, what do you most want instructors, academic advisers, and other student-support staff to be aware of? When the COVID-19 pandemic ends, what changes do you think you will retain in how you tutor? Any new habits you plan to keep with respect to how you study and learn?
