Schedule an Online Appointment with a Tutor

Our Learning Lab tutors are not only highly capable of helping you earn better grades, they're also very fun to study with!

The Learning Lab has both faculty specialists and peer tutors with expertise in a broad range of subject areas. We are available online to help answer general questions, guide you through complex ideas, and help you with your study techniques. All tutoring services are FREE. You can schedule up to 60 minutes of tutoring per day.

Tutoring services are available Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Currently, the Learning Lab offers two types of appointments to students:

  • Online is a face-to-face online tutoring session using Zoom. This type of session is most often used for subject tutoring, such as computer technologies, foreign languages, ESL, math and science. Appointments for online tutoring should be made 48 hours in advance.
  • e-Tutoring sessions allow you to simply upload a document, such as an essay, and identify one part of the writing process you would like help with. The tutor will review the document and provide you with focused written feedback and guidance on how to improve your writing.

How to Access Tutoring Online

The Learning Lab offers a comprehensive system of support, ranging from help in a specific course to detailed instruction in writing and study skills. The primary modes of support are peer-based individual and group tutoring. 

Video-Chat Online appointments will be interactive and meet face-to-face using Zoom.

E-tutoring appointments will be asynchronous - submit a question or a problem by email; a tutor will respond within 24 hrs (1 business day).

E-Tutoring Rules and Expectations

Students may schedule up to 12 appointments per week, per subject and in any combination of E-tutoring and Video-Chat, Online Video-Chat, or Online Writing Center submissions. Appointments may be requested up to 2 weeks (13 days) in advance. Same day appointments may be requested up to 4 hours before the start time of the session. Requests received within the 4-hour window will be rejected. Only requests received from email addresses will be accepted. Requests sent from all other email address domains will be rejected.

After sending in a request for tutoring, students can expect one of the following responses: 

  • A response acknowledging receipt of your request, informing you that your request has NOT been accepted. In this case the email you receive will contain information regarding alternate times your request could be accommodated 
  • A response acknowledging receipt of your request, informing you that your request has been accepted. In this case, you will receive a response confirming your appointment, including next steps.*

*For online Video-Chat appointments, the link to your Zoom meeting may be sent up to the start time of your session

Late Policy: Students who are more than 10 minutes late to an appointment forfeit the time slot.

Cancellation/No Show Policy: Appointments can be canceled via email up to 90 minutes before the scheduled session time. Appointments that are canceled within the 90-minute window will be marked as missed. Three missed appointments will result in limited tutoring appointments.
