Whether you need help with your Math assignment, learning a foreign language or even perfecting a move in ballet, the internet offers an array of videos and websites ready to teach you just about anything for free. And as students start looking for help in unconventional places, colleges and universities are offering online tutors of their own.
Westfield State College is part of a group of colleges that share free online tutoring responsibilities available to their students.
"We contribute a Writing tutor, but this also gives us access to an Accounting tutor, Psychology tutor, Statistics and Math tutors," says Lynn Zayac, Westfield State College’s Director of the Center for Instructional Technology.
Westfield State students simply log on to the college’s ETutoring site. There they have access to chat rooms where they can not only type their questions to tutors, they can also speak directly to the tutor of their choice. Kim Gelinas takes a mix of online and on campus classes at Westfield State and says ETutoring fits into a busy student’s schedule.
