Online Tutoring

Interested in online tutoring? Here’s what you need to know:

How

Go to MyUGS and click on “schedule a session.” Select “online” from the drop-down menu to see if there are any online tutoring appointments available for your course. Claim a session and follow the instructions to schedule the appointment.

Once the tutor has received your request in MyUGS, they will send you instructions for attending the session on Zoom.

When

Be sure to book your online tutoring session at least 48 hours in advance to ensure that you and your tutor have sufficient time to set up the video conferencing.

Where

You can participate in online tutoring from anywhere, but it is helpful to have a quiet space with a dependable internet connection.

What

Be prepared with electronic copies of your notes, homework, study materials, etc.

It is helpful (but not required) to have the following:

  • Webcam
  • Touchscreen computer/tablet
  • Stylus
  • Functioning mic
  • Headset

Fine Print

All of our online tutoring sessions will be recorded and secured on UTBox to be viewed only by the tutor for the session and the Tutorial Services professional staff.

By setting up an online tutoring session you consent and grant permission to the Sanger Learning Center to videotape your tutoring session.

Scheduled tutoring appointments cannot be canceled within 24 hours of the appointment time. To ensure that our funding is used responsibly, we ask that tutees cover the cost for any missed sessions. If you miss a scheduled appointment, a lock will be placed on your MyUGS account until you make a payment of $14.00 for the missed appointment through Bevo Bucks.
