The Lehman Tutoring Center (LTC) and the Science Learning Center (SLC) offer the following:
- online tutoring in writing, select humanities and social sciences courses as well as academic coaching through our virtual Lehman Tutoring Center.
- online tutoring in select natural science courses is avaialble in our virtual Science Learning Center.
LTC Online Writing Tutoring
The online writing tutoring program enables Lehman students to request feedback on their writing from any computer terminal with Internet connectivity. Students meet live with a tutor on the Blackboard Collaborate platfomr.
Example of LTC Online Email Writing Tutoring Feedback
Students who cannot meet live with a tutor can submit their work for feedback from a writing tutor, ask questions, and communicate with a tutor via e-mail. Because online tutoring, like face-to-face tutoring, requires input from both parties, when students submit work through email, they must also provide background information about the assignment and identify their main concern(s) so that the tutor can tailor his or her response. Students must have a valid Lehman e-mail account to access the online tutoring services.
