  • Click on the "Tutor Request" link to read and agree to the consent information and to follow the prompts to set up your account in the platform.
  • Select the room for the subject with which you would like assistance.  Students are helped one-on-one in the order that they login to the tutoring platform.  If a student is already working with the tutor(s), other students will be held in a virtual “waiting room.”  When the previous student’s session is finished, you will be taken into the tutor’s room.  Sessions are limited to 60 minutes.
