Academic Support and Tutoring Services
If you are a student with a documented disability, please contact disability services at email@example.com and if you are part of the learning disabilities program contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
All students have access to online tutoring through the University’s online learning management system (PLATO). If you have never logged onto PLATO, you may do that here.
The Banacos Academic Center provides a peer tutoring program which will continue online or by phone for the remainder of the spring semester. Students should contact their tutor to determine how they will proceed. Students in need of a tutor may request a tutor online (http://www.westfield.ma.edu/academics/peer-tutoring)
The Center for Reading and Writing will provide student support through remote means. Please sign up for an appointment at their website:
STEM Tutoring (i.e., mathematics and sciences) will offer online appointments during their regularly scheduled times. The STEM tutoring website will have directions for securing remote appointments beginning Monday, March 23 (http://www.westfield.ma.edu/colleges/college-of-mathematics-and-sciences/stem-tutoring)
Reading and Writing Center
Please let your students know that the Reading and Writing Center is up and running online. After I trained the writing consultants (who are both staff and students), we started conducting online sessions this week. The sessions are going really well, and the students we have worked with are still deeply invested in their writing projects. I was impressed by the number of students who chose to keep their appointments this week.
Pass this link onto your students with these instructions:
First time Reading and Writing Center users: Click on "Make an Appointment" and then "Register for an Account." Once you've signed in, the white boxes are available appointments. Click on the one that works with your schedule.
For your online session:
Step 1: a few minutes before you session, sign into WC Online and click on your appointment.
Step 2: then click on START OR JOIN ONLINE CONSULTATION
Step 3: a pop up should open asking you to enable video and microphone.
Step 4: the writing consultant will start the session with you by asking what you'd like to work on. Feel free to paste the assignment and, if you have one, a draft in the white board.
