Online Tutoring

The ACE offers online tutoring in writing and it is piloting online tutoring in various Social and Natural Science courses.


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 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.
