The 2021-2022 academic year continues to bring challenges related to COVID-19 and the Delta variant. During these uncertain times, Becca plans to be a pillar of certainty and a grounded foundation for her students, as all IU students will need to navigate uncharted territory.
Becca has been successfully meeting virtually with students (all over the world) since Spring 2020 semester. Due to COVID-19 uncertainties, safety concerns for students, and campus limitations on meeting in groups, all tutoring sessions are conducted virtually by Zoom, unless conditions change.
Just like in-person tutoring, every session is fully customized. During each virtual session:
- Becca and the student can see each other on the screen
- Becca can see the student’s screen using the “Screen Share” feature, which can be used to share online assignments, e-textbooks, and class notes
- Becca sets up her cell phone camera pointed at her notes that she takes during each session so students can see notes taken in real-time
- Becca sends a text message with pictures of the notes to the student after each session
