Digital Tutoring Center

A free digital tutoring service is available for our students.

Our Digital Tutoring Center has moved online for the spring 2020 semester. Tutoring is provided by students, for students.

Tutors will help students with basic digital skills, such as

  • Rhino
  • Grasshopper
  • V-Ray
  • 3D printing
  • Photoshop
  • Adobe InDesign
  • REVIT
  • And more

Accessing online tutoring is easy:

  • Login to Microsoft Teams and open the channel, CoAD Tutor Session. (If the channel is not in the Teams tab, use the search bar to locate the channel.)
  • Within the Tutor Session Calendar, sign up for a session.
  • A tutor will contact you via the Posts tab.
  • From the Posts tab, you can chat, Zoom and send files.
  • At the end of the session, provide feedback about your session.

Reminders

  • Add the Zoom app to Teams to attend video meetings. Simply click on the Messaging Extensions within the Posts tab and search for Zoom. Login with your UT e-mail account.
  • Within Teams, there is a Help feature with guides on how to use the software.

Thank you!

Thank you to several faculty members who suggested a tutoring service and to college leadership for securing funding for it.

Who should be a digital tutor?

We’re looking for students who are experienced at basic digital skills and mature and eager to help other students succeed.  You’ll need to be able to work at least three hours/week.  You don’t have to be an expert at all of the digital technology, but you do need to have overall knowledge and love learning and growing your own skills.  If that’s you, be sure to apply early. Applications will open soon for fall 2020.

On the simple, online application linked above, you’ll be asked to provide two of our faculty members who can serve as references for you.  Tutoring positions are paid positions.  In spring 2019, the position pays $14/hour.

Thanks for helping our renowned creative culture grow even stronger and for helping other students succeed.

Who should take advantage of digital tutoring?

This is a free service available to any student in the college.  There’s no need to stress over digital difficulties.  Take advantage of free help from students who’ve been where you are.  You might have one small question, or you might need a bit more help.  Either way, tutoring is here for you.  Tutors will not do your work for you; instead, our goal is for you to leave the tutoring experience with more knowledge to make your digital work even better (and faster).

Schedule a time or just walk in.
