Tutoring & Academic Coaching Services

The Institute for Student Success (ISS) is fully committed to helping students reach their academic goals. All services will be offered remotely.

The ISS staff is readily available to students wishing to discuss strategies for succeeding in online and remote classrooms. Any student seeking tutoring support can contact Adam Linetty or by phone at (610) 409-3427.

Individual Tutoring

Our individual tutoring program is designed to help students strengthen their course-specific knowledge and build strategies for success. Students are paired with a student tutor who is an advanced standing student in the course. Tutors and students work together on a one to one basis. Tutoring will be done exclusively online for the semester. Students are encouraged to fill out the Tutor/Coaching Request Form. Students will receive an email directing them with next steps in accessing the online portal.

Academic Coaching

Our academic coaching program is designed to help students develop academic skills throughout their college career and beyond. Peer Academic Coaches are advanced standing students that have been trained to guide students in developing skills such as time management, establishing SMART goals, effective study habits, etc. More information on academic coaching can be found here. Additionally, a student can request an academic coach by filling out the Tutor/Coaching Request Form.

Coaches will also be offering our “Brilliant Bears” coaching workshops. These workshops will focus on student success themes and will offer students a chance to work with coaches and other students on core academic skills. Sessions will begin the week of February 14.

Group Tutoring

Group tutoring sessions are designed to give students the opportunity to work in group settings with guidance from a student tutor. Within the group tutoring program, we offer course-specific workshops, as well as drop in sessions. Please click on the course/subjects listed below to find more information.

WCOnline

WCOnline will be our online platform for tutoring. Please sign up for an account. Once a request has been submitted, an email will be sent to each student with further instructions.

Technology Issues

Students experiencing technology issues should communicate with their assigned tutors to determine the best method to communicate and learn. ISS Tutors will work with each student to accommodate any issues that arise. All students have access to Microsoft Teams, which can be utilized in the event WCOnline is not functioning. Please see below for a link to guidelines.
