NightOWL Online Tutoring

The Tutoring Center is able to provide its NightOWL drop-in online tutoring service through Morrisville’s membership in the STAR-NY (Sharing Tutoring and Academic Resources New York) Consortium.  In addition to Morrisville, numerous other SUNY colleges belong to STAR-NY.  These member campuses hire tutors who can help students enrolled at any of the participating campuses.

Instructions For Working With A NightOWL Tutor

  • Open an updated version of a browser such as Chrome, Firefox, or Safari (do NOT use Internet Explorer) to log into the STAR-NY tutoring site.
  • 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.
