Once logged in you will be asked to verify your account. You can change your password at this time.
The first time you log in make sure to read and accept the eTutoring Terms and Conditions by checking the “I agree to all terms and conditions” box at the bottom of the page.
Once this is completed, you are ready to begin by clicking on one of the eTutoring Services on the welcome page.
Check out the eTutoring Demonstration Videos to get help logging in and using the eChat tools:
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 response within 24-48 hours.
Live Tutoring via eChat allows you to meet with a tutor in one-on-one tutoring sessions via a fully interactive, virtual environment. It's best to have a headset with a microphone when using eChat - this allows you to talk with the tutor while you work. Live sessions are offered for all subjects except Writing. Check the schedule to see when a tutor for your subject will be online.
eQuestions allows you to leave a specific question for an eTutor, who will respond within 48 hours (but usually sooner). eQuestions may be submitted for any of the subject areas covered.
If you choose eChat, colored tutor icons will show which tutors are online. Click on the icon you wish to “chat” with. Note that you must allow pop-ups in the Breeze chat window.
If a tutor isn’t available for eChat, you can leave a message using eQuestions.
The Weekly Tutor Schedules are available in the lower left hand side of the welcome page.
If you need technical assistance, please use the support site.
We look forward to working with you and hope you will take advantage of the online tutoring resources offered by eTutoring early in your courses!
