The Extra Help to Succeed
Whether you take classes on-campus or online, Logan offers several types of tutoring services. Tutors may be teaching assistants, adjunct faculty or full-time faculty with the appropriate expertise to help students reach their academic goals. Get ahead of the game with high-demand courses in anatomy, functional anatomy, biochemistry and neuroanatomy by securing assistance early. Undergraduate and Master’s Degree courses may be supported by tutors with strengths in specific topic areas of the courses.
Faculty Office Hours
If you have questions about a subject or an assignment, talk with your instructor first. Faculty hold office hours for one hour each week during the trimester. Office hours are outlined in the course syllabus. You may also email or call your instructor. You can reasonably expect a response within 24 hours on weekdays when classes are in session. Over breaks and weekends, you may expect a response within 24 hours of the return to regular class schedules.
Logan offers a free peer-tutoring program through the Department of Student Affairs. Peer tutors must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher, an earned grade of A or B in the course they wish to tutor, have an interview with the Assistant Dean of Student Success, fill out an application with faculty recommendation, and be able to provide individual or group tutoring in areas such as the Academic Success Center or other areas decided upon by the tutor and the student.

Associate Dean of Student Success: Karen Dishauzi, DC, PhD, MEd
Some courses have teaching assistants available to help faculty with classroom delivery and management. In these courses, teaching assistants may also hold additional review sessions and office hours.
Open Technique Lab
Logan offers Faculty Technique tutoring and Open Technique Lab to allow students to practice chiropractic techniques under the supervision of a licensed doctor. Students must be enrolled in or have earned credit in the technique they are practicing and the faculty member staffing the Open Lab must approve the practicing of the technique. The faculty member may deny a student practice time if the faculty member has safety concerns, is not trained in the particular technique, or if the student does not meet the aforementioned criteria.
Online students can access comparable tutoring services through video technology. Contact your Academic Success Coach or the Office of Student Affairs to make arrangements. Online students are encouraged to email the Academic Support Program Manager for any questions about how to access a tutor for specific courses that are less of a demand and are not displayed in the drop down menu.
