ASAP Tutor Goals

  1. Help with course strategy
  2. Confirm knowledge
  3. Clarify information
  4. Synthesize the information

Upholding Academic Integrity
ASAP tutors have agreements with many course instructors to safeguard the integrity of your coursework and learning. These agreements require them to adhere to additional guidelines in terms of support for exams and other graded assignments. For example, A&P tutors may not assist students with content on exam days and the days following an exam; tutors will begin assisting students with new content on the day of each exam. Please refer to your course syllabus to learn more about these guidelines. Please also note that tutor sessions are recorded for training development and safeguarding students and our services.


Share Your Video!
Help our tutors help you by sharing your webcam with us while we are on our virtual platforms. Your nonverbal expressions help us gauge your comprehension of material. Increase dialogue exchanges by sharing your webcam during blackboard collaborate or zoom tutoring sessions. For your comfort, we encourage you to use any one of our university created backgrounds.

Tutoring Recorded
Please keep in mind that for tutor training development and for the safeguarding of our services and the students we serve, we record our virtual tutoring sessions. It assists our lead tutor team with documentation and ongoing tutor support. Students may request the recording of a one-on-one session they attended with their Tutor.
