Campus2Campus Tutoring
  [top]

Campus2Campus tutoring uses GoToMeeting (software that allows for web conferencing and online meetings), in order to provide more tutoring/college support opportunities and to make effective use of staff personnel, technology, and resources.

Here’s how it works. Students will now have access to any tutor at any campus by using state-of-the-art technology for their tutoring session. The student will:

1. Search for appointment availabilities in the Campus2Campus Tutoring Center (using TutorTrac in WaveNet).

2. Locate and schedule a session, and

3. Contact the campus coordinator to confirm online session requirements and details. You must have a working WaveNet email address.

Your online session will take place on the campus of your choice, or, with training in GoToMeeting, in your own home using a telephone, microphone, or webcam.

Please contact the SSTC to receive further information on this program, or to schedule a Campus2Campus tutoring appointment that fits your needs.
