Online tutoring support
With online tutoring support, you can make an appointment to have the tutor of your choice work with you via Zoom video conferencing during the time you select.

How do I create an account to use the online scheduler?
From the scheduler log-in page, follow the link found in "First visit? Register for an account.” (Please note: in this system, register and create an account have the same meaning.) You will be re-routed to the “Register for a New Account” page.
The scheduler system gathers some basic information from you to ensure that your account will be accurate and secure.
After you successfully log in, you will see the Schedule Screen. On this screen, dates are listed on the left side in blue. Each date has the TLC hours listed across the top in gray and TLC tutors listed on the left side in white.
Click on the white box that corresponds to the date, time, and tutor you prefer for the consultation.
A smaller screen with the tutor’s bio, drop-down menus, and blank boxes will appear. This is the Appointment Screen. You must complete the boxes and “Save” the appointment to ensure your consultation time.
See other FAQs for help with completing the blank boxes.
You can cancel an appointment by logging in to the Schedule Screen and clicking on the box that was your original appointment. The Appointment Screen will appear. Click “Cancel Appointment” at the bottom of the screen.
My friend and I have the same question for a tutor. Can I add a person to my appointment?
You can have up to two tutees in a session with the tutor. Simply have your friend or classmate click the Zoom link for that same appointment you are in from within the TLC scheduler appointment, or you can use Zoom to 'invite to meeting' if you know your friend's full name and add them to your Zoom chat. If you hover over their name in the Zoom chat, you'll see a carat with a drop-down menu appear, and one of those options is 'invite to meeting.'
Drop-in hour is an opportunity to ask a quick question or hang out with a tutor on hand while you work.
You are not required to make an appointment, you can just click the link to connect on Zoom during that time. If you wish to, you may make yourself an appointment in that time block. (If you do, you will get the reminder of the appointment.)
You don't have to drop in with a group, an individual can attend by themself.
What if my tutor is all booked? Do you have a waiting list?
If your tutor's appointment slots are all full, you can put yourself on the waiting list to meet with that tutor. You will find the Waiting List link underneath the daily schedule on the right-hand side. You are able to limit the time you'd like to be notified for, in case you are not available at a particular time. You could also find another tutor who covers that same subject or focus area by using the drop-down menu to "Limit to" your subject of interest (see: How do I know which tutor is a good fit for me?)
