Welcome back to the Spring 2017 semester. eTutoring will resume services for undergraduates on Monday, January 23 until Friday, May 5th.
Log-in instructions follow below; for assistance, call 201-692-2166.
Three eTutoring resources are available:
Online Writing Lab: Allows you to submit up to three drafts of the same paper to a tutor, ask for specific feedback, and receive your work back with a tutor's comments within 24 to 48 hours. Please note: If you are submitting a paper for review, know that the eTutors do not proofread to identify and/or correct every error in your paper but rather identify patterns of errors or weaknesses and explain how to make improvements.
Offline eQuestions: Allows you to leave a specific question for an eTutor, who will respond within 48 hours (but usually sooner).
Synchronous echat provides live chat tutoring in these subjects this summer:
Math (Developmental through Pre-Calculus)
Calculus I and II
Writing ( all Subjects)
Research Methods and Information Literacy
Anatomy and Physiology 1
