NEW YORK, July 30, 2020 /— Tutor.com, one of the world's largest online tutoring services, and Indiana Wesleyan University, a comprehensive Christian university in Marion, Indiana, announced a recent agreement to enable students in the university's National & Global Program to receive assistance from Tutor.com tutors on demand, online, 24/7, and in more than 200 subjects.

The company's more than 3,000 vetted and qualified tutors also serve learners via Tutor.com's partnerships with state and local libraries, corporate employee benefit programs, nonprofit organizations, and the U.S. Department of Defense and Coast Guard Mutual Assistance.

“We are so honored to add Indiana Wesleyan University’s National & Global program to our list of clients," said Sandi White, Vice President and General Manager, Tutor.com Institutional Programs. "We have been fortunate to serve many of the nation’s online pioneering institutions, and Indiana Wesleyan is certainly one of the leading members educating a worldwide audience every day. Now the university's students will benefit from 24/7 access to expert academic support in more than 200 courses."

The largest private university in Indiana, Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU) serves an extensive worldwide community of learners. More than 3,000 students are enrolled in programs at the university's 350-acre campus about 80 miles northeast of Indianapolis. In addition, more than 9,000 adult-education learners attend classes online and/or in the university's centers throughout Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio.

With this new partnership, IWU students needing help in their courses can receive expert assistance online from Tutor.com tutors whenever they need it. IWU's faculty can access Tutor.com's unique Client Portal, a dashboard providing immediate data on all tutoring session activity. Faculty using Tutor.com's Early Alert service also receive notifications about students who may be struggling in their courses as well as actionable data from Tutor.com's expert tutors that they can use to assist students.

Said Kim Herrington, IWU's Student Support Resource Manager, "Tutor.com is a natural fit, as their administrators and tutors seem to match IWU's pedagogical approach and philosophies regarding valuing the student, adding the human touch, and innovating to meet student needs." Adam Binkerd, Director of Student Success at IWU, added, "We are confident that our choice of Tutor.com will enhance the experience of our students seeking tutoring support and further uplift the gains we are making in student persistence and retention."

Jim Barnes, Vice President of Higher Education at Tutor.com, who spearheaded the agreement with IWU, noted, "We were delighted to work with IWU administrators and educators to plan this partnership. Their feedback and learner-focused goals enabled us to customize our services to their needs. Perhaps most gratifying to us all has been the response we've together received from IWU students using Tutor.com. Just two months into the launch of our services, they have weighed in with a 96% recommend rate."
