Want help from an online tutor? Follow these steps to get started!

If you’d like to review your work with a tutor, you will need to be able to upload your work to Google Docs (also called Google Drive) so that you and your tutor can view and comment on the draft at the same time. You will also have the option of communicating with your tutor through a voice or video call via Skype or Google Hangouts or through the chat window within Google Docs.

If you do not already have a Google account (required) and a Skype account (optional), you will need to set these up before you’re able to access the scheduling system. Once you’ve set up these accounts, you may then register for access to the scheduling system, where you can make an appointment with a tutor.

The steps below will guide you through the process of setting up the necessary accounts. A separate set of instructions will show you what to do once you’ve set up the accounts and are ready to sign up for an appointment.

You can make two kinds of appointments:

  •  synchronous appointment (real-time) 
  •  asynchronous appointment (not real-time).
