November 2021

With the Thanksgiving season upon us, we at Tutor.com have so much to be grateful for. Together with partners like you, we provide academic support for thousands of learners each day. We are honored to partner with you. 

This month, we also celebrate American Education Week by sharing outreach resources you can post through your LMS or social media channels—plus, download some of our end-of-semester graphics, designed to remind students they have access to 1-to-1 tutoring and writing support as they approach exam season.

We are immensely privileged to be able to serve campus communities like yours year-round. From our Tutor.com family to yours, we wish you a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

All the best,
Your Tutor.com Higher Education Support Team
Lauren, Jim, Cindy, Marcy, Tawana, Karen, Ashlenn, and Sandi

Mini-Conference Recording Now Available!
In partnership with NCLCA, Southern New Hampshire University, and St. Petersburg College, Tutor.com recently hosted a 90-minute mini-conference, Thought Leaders in Student Support: How SNHU and SPC Are Transforming Higher Ed. We invite you to watch the session to gain insights into how a student-centered approach to academic support can lead to improved learner outcomes.


Key takeaways from the mini-conference:

✅Centralizing your academic support hub reduces barriers to access and makes it easier to measure student outcomes (such as persistence rates).
🔎 You already know that Tutor.com offers 24/7 online support to your students—but did you know we also offer a platform-based solution designed to improve ease of access? Click here to learn more about LEO, our new Learner Engagements Online platform (coming soon!)

✅Marketing your academic resources to both students and faculty is key. This can be accomplished by creating simple guides—and making them all available in the same place.
🔎 As a Tutor.com partner, you have access to regular marketing support, including our Higher Ed Client Resource Center, to help increase engagement with your student support services.

Scaling student support to meet increased demand is possible through strategic partnerships.
🔎 Tutor.com complements campus tutoring services with 24/7, 1-to-1, on-demand access to help in more than 250 subjects.

As we near the end of another semester, we invite you to share some new social media graphics and blurbs to remind students that they have access to your institution’s Tutor.com program. Please feel free to post these on social media—and wherever you digitally interact with your campus community.
