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. You may have to wait because students are helped in the order in which they log on; the tutors should greet you in the chat box area to the right of the whiteboard when you enter their rooms.
