Tutoring for Remote Learning

Despite current interruptions to the academic calendar and the move to virtual / remote learning, the Institute for Student Success (ISS) is fully committed to helping students reach their academic goals through the remainder of the spring semester.

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

Tutoring will be done exclusively online for the remainder of the semester. Students are encouraged to fill out the Tutor Request Form. Students will receive an email directing them with next steps in accessing the online portal.

Help Rooms (Math/Computer Science, History, & Physics)

To ensure that students are getting the help they need, we are moving tutoring for all help room areas (Math and Computer Science, Physics, and History) to individual tutoring for the duration of remote learning. Students seeking support in these courses should fill out a Tutor Request Form for the course they are taking.
