Tutoring Services

The AEC is able to provide online tutoring because Morrisville has opted into STAR-NY (Sharing Tutoring and Academic Resources New York Consortium).  The other colleges participating are Alfred State, Buffalo, Cortland, Delhi, IT, Oswego, Plattsburgh, Tompkins-Cortland Community College, and Ulster Community College.  The colleges hire tutors who can help students from any of the participating campuses.

Schedule of Online Tutoring

  • Accounting Tutoring Available Monday and Thursday nights 7p-midnight
  • Math Tutoring Available Sunday through Thursday nights 7p-midnight
  • Writing Tutoring Available Sunday through Thursday nights 7p-midnight

Online tutoring during Spring 2014 will be available from M, 1/27/14, through R, 5/8/14.

Instructions for Working with an Online Tutor:

  • Email papers, assignments, questions, etc. that you would like to work on with the tutor to onlinetutoring@cortland.edu.  Documents can be sent to this email at any time, but you have to enter the online tutoring platform between 7:00 p.m. and midnight Sundays through Tuesdays to work with a tutor.  A tutor will not respond or correct your work and then email it to you.  To receive online tutoring, a student must interact with the tutor in the online platform.
  • Open a browser other than Internet Explorer such as Firefox, Safari, or Chrome to log into the tutoring site:   www.cortland.edu/asap/online/STAR-NY_signin.asp .
  • Click on the "Sign In Here" link.  Enter the information requested. 
  • Select the room for the subject with which you would like assistance.  You may have to wait because students are helped in the order in which they log on; the tutor should greet you in the chat box area to the right of the whiteboard.
