How do I access Tutor.com?
Tutor.com is available by logging into D2L and clicking on the "resource" tab at the top of the page. You will see an option for tutor.com.

Email your instructor during his/her office hours. You may also want to form an online study group with interested classmates.

What do I need to bring with me when I come in for tutoring?
Be ready with your name and tech ID, textbook, syllabus, and your assignment or a printed draft of your paper. It will also help you make the most of your time with a tutor if you have specific questions or goals for the session. Tutors are not able to correct your homework or tell you which questions are wrong, but they will help you understand concepts and give you suggestions for how to study the material.
