The ACE offers online tutoring in writing and as of the Spring 2013, it is piloting online tutoring in Sociology 166, 301, 303. Additionally, the SLC is piloting online tutoring in Chemistry 114.
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 in real time or via email tutoring. Students submit their work to a designated email 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 email account to access the online tutoring services.
Online tutoring in select social sciences courses and chemistry tutoring enables Lehman students to receive tutoring in the supported classes in real time using Blackboard's Collaborate. Students wishing to receive tutoring for the select social sciences or chemistry courses in which online tutoring is offered must have a valid Lehman email account, access to their CUNY portal account and to a computer that meets the specific technical requirements.
