eTutoring

Young female student reviewing eTutoring instruction on a tablet.eTutoring is a collaborative effort between Ohio’s two- and four-year institutions, allowing undergraduate students to interact with trained tutors in numerous academic areas. All public and private institutions of higher learning in the state are invited to join OhioLINK eTutoring. Participating state post-secondary institutions provide a campus coordinator and tutor that are employed by the university or college.

How Does It Work?

eTutoring provides academic support for traditional classes, online courses, and for distance-learning students. Services are available beyond the typically on-campus academic support centers’ hours and for students who cannot make it to campus.

Students can choose two options for online academic support:

  • Live tutoring sessions in an online room within the eTutoring platform room, utilizing audio, a whiteboard, document-sharing and instant messaging.
  • Writing reviews where students receive written encouragement and suggestions on improving their written work.
