Instructors, please use the materials provided here to introduce your students to Tutoring Services.

Welcome, instructors!

We're here to help you succeed, too!

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Hello, students and staff:

Good news! Your favorite MATC tutors will be available online, by phone and in virtual (and some in-person) classrooms for Fall!

Students, you can find a Walk-In tutor by checking the Online Tutoring Schedules. Click on your program under its Pathway to find tutors' courses, schedules and room links. Our Walk-In tutors will work with you in virtual “rooms,” using Blackboard Collaborate. (Don’t worry, they’ll help you learn how to use it if you don’t know!)

You can join the tutor by clicking the link or calling into the session. It’s that simple.

Also, consider using these other online services:

  • NetTutor serves most subject areas. Math and several other tutors are available 24/7. You can access it via myMATC and some Blackboard courses.
  • MATC’s Online Writing Lab (OWL) helps students with papers on any subject, for any class. Allow 24 business hours for a reply.

Instructors, in order to help your students get better access to online tutoring:

  • Share the above information with your students.
  • Enable NetTutor within your Blackboard shell so students can get easy access to this service.
  • Add your tutor(s) to your Blackboard class(es) so tutors can actually interact with students via Collaborate.

Note: Co-requisite, In-Class and Supplemental Instruction tutors will continue to work during class hours in most cases, except they will be available through Blackboard Collaborate.

Return to this page in the future for updates about Tutoring and Academic Support.  If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to contact Sarah Helding at heldings@matc.edu

We’re cheering for you all!  Stay well!

What's happening?

Recommend a student to be a tutor

Instructors, we rely heavily on your recommendations to find student tutors. In fact, we require potential hires to get an instructor recommendation.*

You can proactively fill out the recommendation form and give it to a student to turn in. The student should have passed your course (or an equivalent) with a B or better.

We also require students to fill out and turn in an Interest in Tutoring form. Students can find more information on our employment page.

* Please note that your recommendation is NOT a guarantee of employment for the student, as we consider several factors when hiring.
