SEPTEMBER 10, 2020 — UTSA is extending learning opportunities to help students excel in their classes through an online tutoring pilot initiative this semester. TutorMe is a free service with live academic support 24 hours a day, seven days a week to meet the needs of students on their own time.
“With the shift to online learning, we knew we needed to enhance accessible, relevant and effective virtual/online academic support to our undergraduate students to better assist them in reaching their educational goals,” said Tammy Wyatt, UTSA’s vice provost for student success. “TutorMe provides that extra layer of support to ensure students are successful in this learning environment.”
TutorMe offers Roadrunners tutoring sessions, access to highly qualified tutors from the best universities around the globe, access to GRE and ACT courses and technical support via chat. The multitude of options allows for the students to be able to choose their desired services and craft the experience to the meet their personal needs.
Through this pilot initiative, UTSA is offering TutorMe in 21 courses covering more than 100 sections in the College of Business; College for Health, Community and Policy; College of Liberal and Fine Arts; and the College of Sciences, with almost 8,900 students enrolled in these courses. UTSA plans to expand TutorMe to more courses in the spring.

Students can access TutorMe through Blackboard and will be matched with a tutor knowledgeable in a specific course of study. All tutoring sessions are recorded so that students can play it back at their convenience. UTSA students enrolled in courses participating in the pilot are currently allowed up to four hours of tutoring sessions per week.
TutorMe is one of the many resources UTSA offers to enhance student success. Other academic support services include supplemental instruction, academic success coaching, and tutoring sessions through the Tomás Rivera Center and math learning assistance through the Math Matters Student Success Center.
Roadrunners who plan to learn, teach, live, work or research at UTSA this summer are invited to attend one of these town halls where members of UTSA's Public Health Task Force will share updates from their recently released 4.0 report. The town halls will be a terrific opportunity to ask questions and learn more about summer campus operations.Virtual Event
