Wyzant designed a new experience specifically for students whose schools are paying for their tutoring. This experience allows Higher Ed students to more easily track their tutoring requests, view their available tutoring hours, and search for and communicate with tutors without worrying about their hourly rates.
A Quick Tour
Once their account has been created, students can login to their Wyzant for Higher Ed account by going to www.wyzant.com/login and logging in with the username and password associated with their Wyzant for Higher Ed account.
The Dashboard shows students’ upcoming scheduled sessions and open tutoring requests.
Clicking on a specific tutoring request allows a student to view the request details, join an online session, message a tutor, or search for their own tutor for that specific request without worrying about tutors’ hourly rates.
Students can now search and browse for tutors without worrying about hourly rates.
The Messages tab allows students to communicate with tutors they have been connected to as well as request a session time or view a tutor’s profile.
The Sessions tab provides students with a view of all scheduled and past tutoring sessions across all requests.
The session details page includes information about a specific tutoring session, including date, duration, summary, rating, and recording.
A Quick Note Regarding Students Already Using Wyzant
Students who had access to the previous Wyzant student experience will see this message when they log into Wyzant for the first time following the transition to the new Higher Ed student experience:
Students may not have tutoring requests listed on their Dashboard if they had access to Wyzant before the “tutoring request” functionality was released earlier this year. These students will still see upcoming scheduled sessions on their Dashboard, and all previous sessions will still be listed on their Sessions page.
It is important to note that sessions only count towards a listed tutoring request if the session occurs after the tutoring request was submitted.
