For Faculty



Through our appointment software, we have options to use distance tutoring. Students can log in and create an appointment.  They need to attach an essay draft (preferable to attach the assignment sheet and rubric, too) to the appointment. Once they create the appointment and attach, a tutor will read and return feedback in an hour. The student receives the feedback two different ways to ensure they get it in a timely manner.
