CAAS Updates

March 17, 2020

 

Tutoring through Zoom

Each tutor will have a unique meeting ID to host their tutoring hours. As usual, the tutoring schedule will be sent out to students, but the schedule will now also include the meeting ID for each tutor. In addition, the tutoring schedule and the meeting ID for each tutor will be available on the CAAS website . To join a tutoring session, students can access the site/app and click “join a meeting” then enter the meeting ID for the respective tutor; CAAS asks that students at least put their first name in “your name” to help the tutor with introductions. CAAS writing tutors will continue to serve students on a one-on-one basis while our other tutors will continue as a group tutoring model.

Academic Coaching/Student-Athlete Peer Mentoring through Zoom

Each coach/peer mentor will have a unique meeting ID to host their sessions. If a student is already working with a coach/peer mentor, they will reach out the student individually with their meeting ID and determine a specific meeting time.  If students are interested in requesting an academic coach or student-athlete peer mentor, please email caas@poets.whittier.edu.  

More information about academic coaching and student-athlete academic support services are available online. 

CAAS Advising Appointment through Zoom

The professional staff in CAAS will continue to provide support to students through one-on-one meetings. Each CAAS advisor will have a unique meeting ID to host their sessions. If a student is already working with a CAAS Advisor, they will reach out to the student individually with their meeting ID and confirm the specific meeting time. If students are interested in meeting with a CAAS advisor, please email caas@poets.whittier.edu.  More information about resources a CAAS advisor can offer are available online
