In order to provide some enhancements to the eTutoring platform, the system will be unavailable on Wednesday, March 29. Please make note of this as no eQuestions will be accepted nor will papers. No synchronous tutoring will take place that day either. If you have questions regarding this, please direct them to Karen Boyd (email@example.com), Ohio eTutoring Coordinator.

As a student at The University of Akron, you have access to online tutoring in the following undergraduate areas:
Anatomy and Physiology
Math (from the developmental level through Calculus II)
The Online Writing Lab allows you to submit a draft of your paper (for undergraduate classes only, maximum 8 pages) to a tutor, ask for specific feedback, and receive your work back with a tutor’s comments in approximately 24 to 48 hours.
You may submit up to three drafts per paper. Note: This is NOT a proofreading service. The tutor will offer suggestions as to how you can successfully revise your own paper.
eChat will allow you to meet with tutors in one-on-one tutoring sessions via a fully interactive, virtual online environment.
Offline questions will allow you to leave a specific question for an eTutor, who will respond within 48 hours (but usually sooner).
