The Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) and the Science Learning Center (SLC) offer two options for online tutoring:
- online tutoring in writing and in select natural science courses with ACE or SLC tutors.
- online tutoring in writing, and in select natural science and social courses with the assistance of a service called NetTutor
ACE Online Writing Tutoring
The online writing tutoring program enables Lehman students to request feedback on their writing from any computer terminal with Internet connectivity. Students submit their work for feedback from a writing tutor, ask questions, and communicate with a tutor via e-mail. Students submit their work to a designated e-mail account. Because online tutoring, like face-to-face tutoring, requires input from both parties, when students submit work, they must also provide background information about the assignment and identify their main concern(s) so that the tutor can tailor his or her response. Students must have a valid Lehman e-mail account to access the online tutoring services.
