TAMIU Offers Extensive Online Tutoring Services, Showcases Student Tutors


Bob Bullock Hall

Students enrolled at Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) can still receive valuable tutoring services from the comfort of their homes through online tutoring and supplemental instruction sessions.

Offered through TAMIU’s University Learning Center (ULC), enrolled students can sign up for an online tutoring appointment at go.tamiu.edu/ulc-check-in. Tutoring services are currently available Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Fridays, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

From there, students will be able to use the TAMIU Net Check In app that allows them to check-in from wherever they are. The app is currently available on iPhone and Android phones, as well as an online web-check in.

After downloading the app or accessing the web-based check-in, students are prompted to enter their information, including name, phone number, student ID and current email, and choose a tutoring subject. After the check-in, tutors email a Blackboard Collaborate link to begin an online tutoring session.

Sessions work best on a computer with access to a camera, speakers and microphone.

Several tutoring subjects are available including Accounting, Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, College Algebra, Economics, Physics and more.

Also, students have a chance to meet their tutors and learn more about them during an upcoming Meet Your Peer Tutor video campaign featured on ULC’s social media accounts. 

Upcoming featured tutors include Airam Bernal, Andres Marcos, Eduardo Solano, Ismael Arroyo, Jerry Martínez, Joey Peña, Jose Bernal Brosig, Kathia Gloria, Madison Guerra, Melissa Marchan, Omar Ramírez, Orlando Berumen, Oscar Martínez, Paola Ortega, Pradip Sah, Prakash Aryal, Ramon Treviño, Reynaldo Vielma, Rogelio García, Selina Balderas and Virgina Sotelo. 

Videos will be featured twice a week on Monday and Wednesday, beginning June 22 and throughout the summer leading up to the first day of classes. Check out the video series by visiting them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/txamiu.ulc/ and on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/txamiu.ulc/
