Helpful tips:

Make sure your computer is properly equipped.

      • The ideal computer set-up will include a microphone and camera.
      • No access to a computer with a microphone and/or camera? That's okay!
        TutorMe has its own messenger setup, and that can be used instead.
        Also, there's an option to use just audio or just video with messenger
      • No computer? That's okay!
        The Learning Commons (in Hodes) has designated computers for TutorMe.
        Laptop check-outs are available through the Learning Commons.

        You can scan documents in Hodes.
        You can snap a pic of your assignment with your phone and upload it.

Have specific questions ready to go!

      • Before beginning a session, you will be asked to list any assignments and/or questions you want to discuss.
      • The more details you give, the more the more help your tutor can give you!
