Online Tutoring


The Tutoring Center offers online tutoring through a partnership with NetTutor Online Tutoring Service in an effort to provide students with additional course support beyond The Center's normal operating hours.  The partnership is focused on student success and retention.

Dr. Lorett Swank, CSE Director, said, "Face-to-face tutoring may be the most effective method of tutoring, but the Tutoring Center's space and time limitations emphasize the need for expanded services for students who may need late night help or have other time limitations."

Access is available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year through your Moodle homepage under "My Courses."  Your tutoring options will be listed by the subject name followed by "NetTutor" for each course that has available online tutoring.

Students can interact with live tutors using features such as an interactive whiteboard for chatting or creating drawings and symbols (for help with math, chemistry, or physics problems).  The Paper Center accepts lab reports for review.

Using online tutoring is simple -- there are no software downloads required, just an internet connection with Javascript enabled.  Text-to-speech and ESL services are also provided.

Sessions are archived in your personal NetTutor locker, so you can access any help you've received.
