eTutoring Services

Live Tutoring via Zoom allows you to meet with a tutor in one-on-one tutoring sessions via a fully interactive, virtual online environment. 

eQuestions allow you to leave a specific question for an eTutor, who will respond within 48 hours (but usually sooner). 

The Writing Lab allows you to submit a draft of your paper to a tutor, ask for specific feedback, and receive a tutor's response within 24-48 hours. (note: MiraCosta offers its own online writing video feedback service)
