CAS tutors will be available this term. Our goal, as in any academic term, is to provide tutoring for all Lawrence students who request assistance. Julie Haurykiewicz and Kelsey Uherka are available to answer questions or provide direct support to both instructors and students throughout the term.
All tutoring will take place by appointment (see below for information regarding how to request a tutor). It will be up to students and their tutors to determine the tutoring logistics that work best for them (date/time, method of connecting [Zoom, FaceTime, email, phone, etc.], frequency of meetings, etc.).
The best ways for students to get connected with a tutor this term are as follows:
- Students should contact a tutor directly whenever possible. To locate a tutor, students should check their course Moodle site, course syllabi, and/or ask their instructors who the tutors are for a particular course.
- If a student wants to work with the same tutor throughout the term, they can simply make arrangements with the tutor about how meet in an ongoing manner.
- To request a tutor more generally (for any subject/assignment in which a tutor has not already been identified), a student can use the tutor request form in Voyager (a direct link is also available on the CAS website and in Voyager under the Student Services tab—>Academic Resources & Services link—>Tutor Request form). CAS staff will monitor requests in Voyager and assign them to tutors each day.
- If a student experiences difficulty in connecting with a tutor, they should contact Julie and Kelsey directly.
Students should be aware of any requirements for or restrictions on tutoring made by individual course instructors (e.g., you must meet with a tutor before submitting a certain assignment or you cannot work with a tutor on certain assignments). The LU Honor Code will, as always, be in place whenever a student works with a tutor.
Students with disabilities approved for accommodations through Accessibility Services will continue to receive their accommodations for the spring term after they submit their Online Accommodations Request Form. If you are a student approved for accommodations and are having difficulty accessing course content due to the online format, please contact Accessibility Services right away at firstname.lastname@example.org. Students who have elected not to register their disability previously with Accessibility Services may wish to do so at this time. To begin, please complete the Online Eligibility Form.
