eTutoring is provided through the Ohio eTutoring Collaborative. Students at The University of Akron have access to online tutoring in Writing, Accounting, Biology, Chemistry, Math (through Calculus II), and Statistics. The Online Writing Lab allows you to submit a draft of your paper to a tutor, ask for specific feedback, and receive your work back with a tutor’s comments in approximately 24 to 48 hours. You may submit up to three drafts per paper. eChat will allow you to meet with a tutor in one-on-one tutoring sessions via a fully interactive, virtual online environment. Offline questions will allow you to leave a specific question for an eTutor, who will respond within 48 hours (but usually sooner).
The following tutorials can help you register for eTutoring:
