The Skyline College Learning Center (TLC) is excited to announce the addition of online tutoring for students starting this fall, via the NetTutor platform. The initial priority for outreach and access will be students enrolled in online courses, students taking courses for which face-to-face tutoring is not available in TLC, and students who are not able to be on campus during TLC open hours. NetTutor will be accessed through the Canvas learning management system.
NetTutor is an online tutoring platform that offers several levels of assistance; live one-on-one tutoring online, a Q&A center where students can submit questions for response, and an online Paper Center where students can submit drafts of composition assignments for review. The Q&A Center and Paper Center have a turnaround time of 24 hours and 48 hours maximum, respectively. Tutors providing support via NetTutor hold at least a bachelor’s degree and their training is aligned to the same professional standards as TLC tutors.
Online tutoring will be available for Skyline College students in over 50 subject areas within the broader discipline areas of English, Math, Accounting, Economics, Finance and Business, Life Sciences and Physical Sciences, World Languages, General Humanities and Social Science, Nursing and Allied Health, Information Technology and Computer Science. As this service is implemented, TLC will work with individual faculty and departments to ensure that NetTutor provides the correct type of support for students
