Note that while the course calendars for Tradition, Early Calendar and Year-Long courses do not align, students may choose to attend any live session of their choosing. Students are also welcome to attend more than one session for extra practice! Students need to log in with both first and last name to ensure they receive credit for attendance. Those who phone in using the teleconference option need to identify themselves to the instructor presenting so their attendance is documented!
The Peer Tutoring Center - Virtual Buddy Program!
Our Virtual Buddies are ready to help by lending a hand to students needing an extra little push, another reminder, a bit of time management guidance or encouraging words throughout the week. Do keep in mind, Virtual Buddies do not provide content specific support. While we do try to match students with a Virtual Buddy with experience in their course, we cannot guarantee it.
In essence, Virtual Buddies are student cheerleaders - motivating and encouraging students to keep them on track and hold them accountable to their course requirements each week.
