Background

Background

The Office of Academic Success Initiatives and Support (formerly the Center for High Impact Practices) announced a new resource for students, Tutor.com.

The Tutoring Partners Task Force, comprised of faculty and administrators who represent the tutoring centers on campus selected courses to support through this tool. These courses were chosen based on previous tutoring usage, student need, and faculty requests.

What is Tutor.com?

Tutor.com provides free, high-quality, online learning services to institutions across the country. ODU will be using Tutor.com to give students access to live, online tutoring available 24/7. Students enrolled in the supported courses can connect to Tutor.com from any computer or mobile device with Internet access. Access to Tutor.com is available now through Canvas.

For questions about tutor.com, please contact Marissa Jimenez at mjimenez@odu.edu or Diana Hernandez at dmhernan@odu.edu

Who are Tutor.com Tutors?

Tutor.com tutors go through a rigorous vetting process. First and foremost, tutors must have a bachelor's degree; 60% of the 3,000+ tutors also have an advanced degree. To qualify as a tutor, each applicant endures a multi-step qualification process:

  • Tutors must pass a timed, subject exam. This exam lasts about 3 hours depending on the subject. Of the 150,000+ applicants Tutor.com sees a year, less than 10% pass this step.
  • Tutors must demonstrate via mock sessions that they do indeed have the subject matter expertise and that they possess the skills to tutor. During the mock sessions, evaluators at Tutor.com assess communication, writing, and technology capabilities.
  • Tutor.com completes a seven-year background check validating educational credentials and any criminal convictions. Of those remaining, only 81% pass this step. If hired as tutors, additional background checks occur every six months while employed.
  • Once hired, tutors enter a 30 - 60-day probationary period where their sessions with real students are evaluated daily. Tutors are evaluated informally by their mentors on a monthly basis and formally every 90 days.
