Online E-tutoring - For support when Lane tutors are unavailable

Early Outreach and Referral

All students who use a tutor will be asked to add a noncredit, tuition-free CRN# once per term. This allows Lane to receive reimbursement from the state for services provided to students.

Tutoring Session:

A one-on-one (or small group) writing tutoring session consists of tutors providing support to students by discussing student writing needs and collaborating in order for the student to reach their writing goals. This can be anything from the initial brainstorm to structure and organization to proofreading to citations. In addition to the writing process, sessions may also include conversation about overcoming writing anxiety, writing tips, and strategies for achieving writing objectives inside and outside of school.

Writing Sessions are: Writing Sessions are not:
an open conversation between student and tutor about a student’s writing a formal reading or assessment of student writing
a collaborative effort by both student and tutor to meet goals of writing assignment and address student needs an opportunity for tutors alone to solve writing issues and do writing assignments for students
an excellent, free resource for enhancing student writing by receiving feedback through asking questions and receiving recommendations a stress-filled environment where students are obligated to follow tutor recommendations
designated time to focus on and address student writing needs, goals, and obstacles designated time for tutors to complete student readings and assignments in order to compensate for student unpreparedness

How to Prepare for a Writing Tutoring Session:

  1. While walk-ins are welcome, making an appointment is strongly encouraged to guarantee time with a tutor. You can make appointments on WCOnline.
  2. Bring or have access to your assignment guidelines.
  3. Have an idea of what you want to highlight to your tutor as top priority for the session (even if that means telling your tutor you are overwhelmed and do not know where to start).
  4. Try to schedule your session well in advance of the assignment due date so that you have plenty of time to make revisions and schedule follow-ups, if needed.
  5. Be ready to ask lots of questions in order to accomplish your writing goals!

How Often Students can Meet with Tutors per Week:

Appointment times may be limited based on demand in some tutoring areas/disciplines.

What to Do About Canceled or Missed Appointments:

In the event that a student is no longer able to attend their scheduled tutoring appointment, then it is their responsibility to cancel the appointment.

If a student fails to arrive for their scheduled tutoring appointment within 10 to 12 minutes of the appointment start time, then it is the tutoring policy to mark the appointment as a NO SHOW. If a student accrues 2 or more NO SHOWs, then they will be automatically restricted from making future tutoring appointments until they communicate with the tutoring coordinators, email
