If students are working on an assignment and feel stuck or unsure of what to do, they can log onto Live Help. Speaking with a tutor is really easy, and they will be happy to help you work through any questions you have. Just remember to come prepared with what you are working on and any questions you may have.
When using live help, there are a few things students need to keep in mind.
- They should come prepared with a clear idea of what you are working on. For example, it’s okay to come online and say to a tutor “My teacher went over X today and I really didn’t get it”. If they have a specific question too then great. If they come online and say “Hi, I don’t understand physics” it’s going to be a little more difficult for the tutor to get to the bottom of what they need help with.
- Tutors don’t have access to their course materials. So they should make sure they have all the materials that needed handy.
- You have tools like the whiteboard and file sharing to help you send your question to the tutor.
- They should always be honest with your tutor about where they are at... The tutor will meet them there. That way, they can progress through the question together.
Essay Review is actually really useful in science class! Although students may not be writing “essays”, Essay Review will give them feedback on lab reports or other written work. This will make sure they are on the right track and are fulfilling assignment prompts before they hand it in to you for grading.
