Academic Resource Center Pairs with NetTutor, Wyatt Moves to Tutoring Program Coordinator

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) is excited to announce two developments with the Tutoring Program:

  1. Effective Monday, June 3, Cherie Wyatt, current part-time Undergraduate Academic Advisor, will move into the full-time role of the Tutoring Program Coordinator.
  2. The University is moving forward with its partnership with NetTutor, a professional online tutoring program.

 

“These developments bring more positive changes to the university and the ARC,” said Erica Ellard, director of the Academic Resource Center. ”Wyatt will be an excellent partner with students and faculty and staff members and will help move the ARC, the Tutoring Program, and the university forward to provide even more support for students to achieve successful outcomes. We are excited to bring Wyatt onto the team and to begin implementation of NetTutor.”

Wyatt joined Webster in January 2018 and has worked with faculty and staff members throughout the worldwide system while supporting undergraduate students and their educational goals. As the Tutoring Program Coordinator, she will continue to support students and their educational goals and will expand her work further throughout the worldwide network, including to graduate students.

Primary responsibility will be the implementation of NetTutor, which will allow all Webster students more access to tutors and tutoring support in more subject areas than the on-ground peer tutoring model has been able to accommodate. The ARC, specifically Wyatt, will continue to hire peer tutors and to provide on-ground drop-in and by-appointment peer tutoring to students as well.

Wyatt has worked in higher education for more than 10 years and has a JD from Saint Louis University School of Law and bachelors of arts degrees in political science and Spanish from the University of Missouri – Columbia. 

Wyatt said, “I’m excited for the opportunity to work with the Tutoring Program and offer continued support to Webster University students.”

Wyatt is currently available in the Office of Academic Advising. Beginning June 3, she will relocate to the ARC; her current email (cheriewyatt41@webster.edu) will continue to be available, and her phone number will be 314-246-7107.

More information will be distributed about NetTutor as implementation continues, and the ARC team will reach out to department chairs and the University regarding the implementation process and to request feedback. The goal is to have NetTutor available for students before the end of the Summer 2019 term.
