Ada Lovelace Online Tutoring (A.L.O.T.)

It is here: Ava Lovelace Online Tutoring (A.L.O.T.)

The ASC/Math Center has launched the Ava Lovelace Online Tutoring (A.L.O.T.). This online tutoring service is suggested for Bearkats who are unable to participate in our Math Center tutoring sessions. While this service is open to all students, we encourage those who can make it to the Math Center or the Library to do so during the posted hours.

The goal of this service is to provide an enjoyable and rewarding experience for all participants looking for assistance in STEM related subjects. Sessions are currently only by appointments, and are scheduled for 30 minutes. Let’s get started by following the procedures below:

Procedures (This is a one-time action for access to the program)

From your SHSU email account, send an email to MathCenter@shsu.edu with the Subject: Math Center/ALOT. In the body of the email be sure to include your name, username, the class in which you require assistance, and your instructor.

Example:

Name: __Sammy Bearkat_____

User Name: __sxb001________

Within 24 hrs. of submission you will receive an email confirming your addition as a participant, where you will now be able to make appointments and access a tutor by following the following the Blackboard Collaborate Ultra Access Instructions below.
