Online Tutoring

Students and proctors are able to connect via online collaboration software in interactive video or audio synchronous subject content and writing sessions. The audio communication can be via the computer microphone and speakers or a dial-in phone bridge to ensure any student can talk with a proctor. Desktop sharing allows the proctor to view and discuss student assignments and allows the proctor to share and discuss information with the student when necessary. Students can also obtain supplemental materials distributed electronically during these sessions.

Students are also able to receive asynchronous writing assistance through document sharing. Students share their essays with the Apache Tutoring Center, and a writing tutor leaves comments and suggestions for improvement in the margin. Afterward, students can view these comments by opening their essays.   

Professors are encouraged to speak to students about online tutoring services in their “Online Orientation” and/or provide a link to the services from within their online course. Also, tutoring staff members often make presentations about their services during online orientations when invited by professors.
