The Extended Leaning Center is here to help you succeed. Our expert tutors have moved online and will be happy to connect with you. This fall, we are offering Drop-In Tutoring where you don't need an appointment and can spend as much or as little time as you need in a WebEx room with a tutor or you can make an individual appointment through Brainfuse Tutor Match. (Each tutoring session will be recorded, so please be in proper attire (e.g. no pajamas) when attending your session.) Our Online Writing Lab is available as well.
Here is all the information:
If you have a quick question and no time to make an appointment or if you want to hang out in a WebEx room with a tutor while you work on your assignment and ask questions as needed, this is the option for you!

A list of available appointments will come up. You can change the date by clicking on a different date at the top of the list. When you find an appointment that works for you, click Select.

Please be sure to set yourself a reminder to attend your appointment. We are eager to help you succeed, but we can’t help if you aren’t there.
