At LMU, we recognize that sometimes our students may need some extra help academically. We have a two-pronged approach where we always encourage the students to discuss issues with instructors first, but also believe that students can benefit from getting indivdualized tutoring as well.
As we begin to have students back on campus our tutoring center, The Tagge Center for Academic Support, will be doing remote peer tutoring. This will be through the use of the program zoom. This will allow our peer tutors and students to be safe, follow our university Covid-19 guidelines, and still give quality instruction. Remote tutoring will allow student and tutor to see and interact with each other, share screens, and documents.
Our Tutoring Center will be available for virtual appointments from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.
To make an appointment for tutoring please do the following:
1. Stop by the Tagge Center in the library and make an appointment.
2. If you are off-campus or at an extended site, call 423.869.6310 to make an appointment or email Jill Neeley,
3. If you have tutoring needs after hours, we have a free program called TutorMe that is available for the use of all LMU students. TutorMe allows you to connect with a live tutor in under 30 seconds for over 300 subjects. Additionally, you can submit a paper on TutorMe's writing lab and receive detailed feedback in less than 12 hours.
This is a 24 hour a day/7 day a week service as well. To access TutorMe, log on to Blackboard and click on the TutorMe link on the top left hand side of the page under the Academic Support module. Here is a document that gives detailed instructions on how to access this. We think that this will be a great tool to help our students succeed during this time of remote learning.
