Tutoring services are available for all students and arranged by contacting the Office of Student Advancement and Success (SAS). Services are provided for both on-campus and distance education students through Tutor.com. Tutor.com is available for selected courses and a wide variety of subjects each month at no additional cost to students. It is available 24/7 via the Internet for students taking courses by any modality, from anywhere. In addition to 1000s of online resources through Tutor.com, students have access to 1-to-1 tutoring each month from Tutor.com’s Live Tutoring options.
Faculty members may also engage in tutoring. Tutoring usually involves an extended tutor-student interaction that often extends to identifying and remediating areas of prior learning needs. As such, while Salem understands tutoring supports student learning, the expectations for student progression and delivery of the current course content mitigate the time and attention that can be devoted to tutoring.
On campus, virtual, afternoon, and evening tutoring hours may also be arranged as study halls. Individual tutoring for distance education students may be arranged upon request online. Students may request tutoring by contacting SAS at email@example.com. Salem also provides online tutoring via the Writing Center which offers faculty-led support to improve students’ academic writing and research skills.
