Student responsibility:

Come prepared with your textbook, assignment, class notes, and any work you have started. The tutors will not give you answers or confirm answers; they will help guide you along in the process. When submitting papers for review, remember to double space and use a readable font (like Times New Roman or Calibri). Remember to use your own words and cite outside sources.

What is a Live Tutorial?

A Live Tutorial is a one-on-one conversation between you and your tutor on the WorldWideWhiteboard®.

NetTutor WordWideWhiteboard example  

What if I don’t have time to chat with a tutor?

The Q&A Center allows you to ask a question offline, which a tutor will respond to within 24-48 hours. When feedback has been prepared, you will receive an email notifying you that your question is ready. After you receive feedback, you can ask a follow-up question or join a Live Tutorial.

How do I submit my paper?

Once you have logged into NetTutor, you can click “Paper Center.” Then, click the “Submit my paper” button. From there, you can answer a few questions about your assignment to help the tutor assist you in the best way possible. Next, browse to your paper’s location on your computer, and click “Upload.” You will receive a confirmation number to show you that your paper has successfully uploaded. Then, once a tutor has reviewed your paper, you will receive an email. Log back into the Paper Center, and view, print, or save your reviewed paper.

NetTutor Paper Proof example

Sample Proofing Summary: Below is a sample of the comments you could receive.

Hello! Thank you for submitting your draft for review. This is a great start, and I thought your narrative was inspiring.

Your thesis statement adequately forecasts the overall discussion, which has allowed you to maintain focus, but you expressed concerns that you think it could be stronger. To strengthen it, you should be more specific: you could include the difficulties you experienced or the reasons you believe finishing high school was difficult.

Your essay is strong in terms of thesis, organization and content, so I suggest that you review sentence structure and grammar and mechanics, especially focusing on fused sentences, the difference between indirect and direct speech, and comma use. There are a few ways to correct fused sentences, including inserting a period after the first independent clause, using a comma and a coordinating conjunction to connect the two clauses, and using a semicolon(;) to separate the clauses.

Keep in mind that I have marked only the first instance of an issue, so be sure to read through your draft carefully and make the changes as needed.
