Welcome University of Bridgeport students to the free online tutoring site. Our participation in online tutoring is just another way to make your experience at UB productive and successful.
As a University of Bridgeport undergraduate and master's level student, you will have ongoing access to online professional tutoring services in the following areas:
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-one-one tutoring sessions via a fully interactive, virtual online environment.
Offline Questions allows you to leave a specific question for an eTutor, who will respond within 48 hours (but usually sooner).
Getting Ready to Use eTutoring
To log in, first choose Northeast eTutoring Consortium, then University of Bridgeport as your institution in the right-hand dropdown box.
All students have been pre-registered. Your username is your UBnet username; your password is your student ID number. If you must be added later in the semester, after our initial upload of students, you will receive a temporary password that you may change to something more memorable.
You may change your password after your initial log in.
