What does an online math tutorial look like?
Prior to an online meeting a math tutor, you’ll receive an email with a link to an online meeting. Click on the link and log in as a guest.

You and the tutor will work through problems using a whiteboard or similar technology.
What can we cover in a math tutoring session?
It’s best to come prepared with questions. Typically, the tutor will work with you through problems similar to those that you’re working on in class. The tutor will demonstrate and then allow you to do some problems to make sure you’re on the right track.
