Online tutoring is free and available by appointment to all JCCC students.

Schedule an Appointment for Online Tutoring

Note: You must make an appointment for an online tutoring session at least 24 hours in advance of your desired day and time.

This service provides support to any writer at any stage of the writing process, whether you’re seeking assistance with brainstorming, development, citation, organization, mechanics or formatting.

You can access online tutoring sessions from anywhere with a reliable internet connection. Your peer tutor will use an interactive whiteboard and web camera to explain writing concepts, give examples and upload helpful PDF handouts or other links to clarify content.

Connecting with an ONLINE tutor is simple. Just click on the blue bar above to schedule an appointment. Once your appointment is confirmed, you will receive an email.

One hour before your scheduled appointment, you will receive a reminder email that includes a link to the Zoom Conference room.

What You Need to Prepare

The Zoom software allows you to conference by IM, audio and/or video. Be sure your computer has a camera if you are a visual learner.

  1. Have your assignment open, either in Google Drive (preferred) or as Word.docx. If you do not know how to share documents in Google Drive, your tutor will talk you through it.
  2. Ensure the writing prompt or guidelines are viewable for the tutor.
  3. Keep your reminder email open to quickly access the Zoom link.
  4. Ten minutes prior to your meeting, please click on the link in the appointment reminder email and follow the on-screen instructions.
  5. Wait patiently for a tutor to come online and direct you further. While we encourage tutors to notify students if the tutor is running late, we realize there may be times when advance notice isn’t possible. Please allow 10 to 15 minutes before ending a session if your tutor doesn’t show.

If you experience problems, please call the Writing Center at 913-469-3439.
