Students are encouraged to come and request a tutor for any subject they are taking here at Firelands. We try to give them a tutor referral as soon as possible. If you have a student which has received an A or B in your class who you would like to refer to the TLC as a possible tutor please contact the student to see if they are interested, and email Jackie at firstname.lastname@example.org with your recommendation. The student will have to complete an employment application and training to become a peer tutor of the TLC.
ANNOUNCEMENT: The Writing Lab needs new student tutors. Instructors are encouraged to search their recent rosters for the names and email addresses of students who possess very good writing and interpersonal skills. Such contact information on possible candidates should be sent directly to Brigette Green-Churchwell (email@example.com).
Make-up tests are at the discretion of the instructor. If a student is granted permission to take a make-up test please advise them to call 419-372-0748 or stop by the Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) at least 24 hours in advance to make an appointment with the receptionist. Testing will be held in blocked hours and up to eight testers can test at one time.

Note: Computerized scoring bubble sheets, envelopes, a calendar, as well as envelope seals and the test submission form are available at the Teaching and Learning Center.

There are several group tutoring sessions including math, business, and psychology groups, which will be reinstated as needed.

SOME "DOS" AND "DON'TS" FOR FACULTY AND STAFF
This includes individual exam grades and semester grades. For example, you cannot hang lists of grades on your office door if students or others can figure out who earned what grade. If you post grades, assign confidential codes to your students in advance and inform them that grades will be listed by these codes. Do not share grade or class schedule information with a third party, including parents.
You can, however, share information with others on campus who have legitimate educational reasons to know; for example, you can tell a student's academic advisor how the student is performing in your class. You cannot share confidential information with parents of a student, unless you know the student is a dependent of the parents.
