Mount Vernon Nazarene University recently partnered with Tutor Matching Services to streamline the university’s tutoring process. The Center for Student Success will use TMS to train and certify tutors and to fill the tutoring needs of students on and off campus. Tutoring through the TMS service is free to current MVNU students and MVNU alumni with a voucher code from the Center for Student Success.
“TMS opens wide our potential for first-class customer service by enabling us to not only provide tutoring for our traditional and GPS students during the night hours and weekends, but by also opening our tutoring services up the local community, the MVNU education region, and the world,” said Brad Whitaker, assistant vice president for Student Success and Retention at MVNU. “I'm particularly excited about the potential for our MVNU students to tutor home-educated and missionary kids around the world.”
In addition to partnering with MVNU, TMS also announced partnerships with College of Southern Idaho, East Tennessee State University, San Diego Christian, Ursinus College, University of South Carolina-Aiken, and Paine College.
“We are delighted to welcome these new partners,” said Ethan Fieldman, co-founder and director of TMS.
MVNU will provide tutoring services to those in the Mount Vernon community outside of the student population for a flat fee of $9 per hour. People in the Mount Vernon community will be able to request MVNU tutors through TMS either in person at the Center for Student Success or remotely through virtual tutoring sessions. Tutoring appointments are scheduled in one-hour increments.
