Online Tutoring 101

In addition to live tutoring in the physical Writing Center on the sixth floor of the Auditorium--overlooking the city, el tracks and Wabash traffic below--students can also set up tutoring sessions from the comfort of their own homes. Or from the sandy shores of fair Lake Michigan. Or from the friendly confines of a bohemian cafe bumping with neofolk. No shoes required. (But please, keep your shirt on.)

The Writing Center provides online, real-time tutoring, where tutors provide immediate feedback for students. This setup is ideal for students who can only meet on late nights, early mornings, or over the weekend when the Writing Center is closed.

So how does it work? First, you'd email or call the Writing Center to set up an appointment, at least three days before your intended session. You need to be sure a tutor is available, right?

Once you're connected with a tutor, you'll receive two important emails with instructions of what to do next--sending your paper, filling out a form, familiarizing yourself with the online chat tool we use, that sort of thing. Be sure to confirm with your tutor! And of course, if you have questions, you know... ask them! :D Other tips for writers can be found here.

On the most exciting day of the online tutoring session, you'll meet with your tutor for a classic, 50-minute session where together you might brainstorm, organize, thesisize, and explode with intensity of writing power.

In the mean time, feel free to peruse our tutorial on how to join an online session.

  1. A lot of apps today make online tutoring really effective. This is really good for students especially after school. It is convenient just like elementary education tutoring, which is a private home tutoring service.

  5. This is a great article about tutoring and very informative. I think tutoring services are a great way to get students help in subjects they are struggling with. My daughter had a hard time with science so I hired a tutor to help her learn. I decided to go with Bay Area Tutors because they come to your own home. This really helped her feel comfortable which ultimately helped her learn better.

  11. Basically Physical tutoring is the best way to promote your quality but in other case online tutoring you can not collaborate with students such like that student is free to ask any thing in your Virtual class.
