When you log into the eTutoring site, there are three types of tutoring to choose from:
- Online Writing Lab allows you to submit a draft of your paper to a tutor, ask for specific feedback, and receive your work back with a tutor's comments within 24 to 48 hours. (You may submit three drafts per paper.)
- Live Tutoring via eChat allows you to meet with a tutor in one-on-one tutoring sessions in a virtual online environment.
- Offline Questions allows you to leave a specific question for an eTutor who will respond within 48 hours (but usually sooner).
