  • There are two options for online tutoring:
    • Online, or synchronous tutoring. This is a live, face-to-face session with a tutor utilizing audio and video chat. This type of online tutoring requires you to log in to WCOnline at the time of your appointment and join the meeting with your tutor by clicking on your appointment in the schedule.

    • eTutoring, or asynchronous tutoring. This is a form of online tutoring which occurs without direct contact with your tutor. eTutoring sessions require you to log in to WCOnline before the start of your appointment time and upload your document. You can upload by clicking on your appointment in the schedule and selecting to edit. You are also able to upload your document at the time you make your appointment if you are finished working on it. eTutoring is offered this semester as a way for students without high-speed internet access to still have writing support. We recommend that all students use our Online Tutoring option if they are able to do so.

  • Appointments are limited to two per day.
  • Appointments must be made at least 2 hours in advance.
