INSTRUCTIONS FOR WORKING WITH AN ONLINE TUTOR:
- Open an updated version of a browser such as Firefox, Safari, or Chrome (do NOT use Internet Explorer) to log into the online 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. The tutors should greet you in the chat box area to the right of the whiteboard when you enter their rooms. Sessions are limited to 60 minutes.
