SAN ANTONIO – The University of Texas at San Antonio is offering a free online tutoring service that will provide its students with academic help around the clock, a press release said.

The TutorMe pilot initiative began this fall semester and is designed to meet to meet the needs of students 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“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 vice provost for Student Success. “TutorMe provides that extra layer of support to ensure students are successful in this learning environment.”

UTSA said TutorMe currently provides access to qualified tutors from universities around the globe in 21 courses and covers 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.

Sessions are recorded so students can play it back at their convenience. Students enrolled in participating courses in the pilot are currently allowed up to four hours of tutoring sessions per week.

UTSA plans to expand their offerings in the Spring of 2021.
