Student Academic Center, Edinburg
Skype Tutoring Request: Make an appointment to speak with a tutor via a video conference. Students will benefit from participating in a “real time” discussion on their computer or mobile device for approximately one hour with a tutor who will provide immediate feedback on their essay. Note: Skype sessions are limited to one per day. Due to time constraints, tutors can generally review no more than five pages per session. During mid-terms and finals, Skype sessions may be reduced to 30 minutes in an effort to serve more students.
Send Your Assignment: Submit a paper and receive comments from a tutor within 24 to 48 hours of submission. Due to time constraints, tutors generally can review no more than five pages per session. During mid-terms and finals, feedback may be delayed due to limited availability of online tutors.
