Truckee Meadows Community College has had great success with embedded tutoring (ET) and supplemental instruction (SI) in terms of enhancing student success. We have piloted ET in face-to-face instruction as well as online instruction in developmental, first-year composition, and literature courses. This webinar will be comprised of four parts: 1) an opening activity in which we propose questions to engage the audience by asking attendees to explain why they’re attending this session, to define their understanding of and experience with embedded tutoring, and to write 1-2 questions for the panel; 2) a presentation to offer context and provide history of the ET/SI program at our institution; 3) a panel discussion comprised of faculty and tutors who have participated in the program; and 4) a closing activity to include a moment of reflection where attendees will include three takeaways (things to implement/research/follow up on/etc). Michelle Montoya will facilitate the presentation by leading the group in the opening activity, by presenting on the history and success of the program (student grades, completion of the course, continuation into future courses, and graduation), by introducing the panel and moderating the panel discussion, and by closing with a reflection activity.

Michelle Montoya worked as a writing tutor at Truckee Meadows Community College and at the University of Nevada, Reno, where she earned a bachelor's in English Writing. While working in the private sector, she obtained a master of arts in organizational management from the University of Phoenix campus in Reno. Since starting back at TMCC in 2008, she has been the Writing Center Coordinator, has taught Developmental English and Tutoring Student Writers, and has served on the board of directors for the Northern California Writing Centers Association. She is nearing completion of a PhD in Educational Leadership and is now the Tutoring and Learning Center Coordinator over writing across the curriculum and all non-STEM subjects.  Michelle recently accepted the position of Executive Director of Academic Support at San Francisco University.
