ASK A TUTOR: LIVE

Live, drop-in video chat sessions with tutors for free, every day of the week


We offer free, live, DROP-IN video chat tutoring with tutors using Zoom! This means you do not have to make any appointments to work with tutors--you just need to click the correct link below for the day/time of one of our open drop-in sessions, and you will be placed into a waiting room to work with one of our tutors.

Your one-on-one sessions with tutors are up to 20 minutes long (30 minutes for writing tutoring sessions). You may have multiple tutoring sessions in a day, but we will be keeping each session to 20 minutes maximum so that as many students can be helped as possible. 


Hours

Live tutoring is available every single day of the week, Monday through Sunday. Times vary by subject, but for many subjects we have coverage beginning at 8 a.m. in the morning and ending around 8 p.m. at night. On some weekdays, our tutors are online until 10 p.m., and, on one day, until midnight. See the schedules below for exact timing.


Available Classes

There are select classes available for live tutoring on this page, with tutors from the LSC. There are other classes for which we do not currently offer live drop-in tutoring, but which you can receive live chat help with by using eTutoring. If you do not want live-chat tutoring, you can submit questions for any class on the regular Ask a Tutor page.

How to Participate

Simply click the link below for the open drop-in session you want to enter! You will be placed into a waiting room and admitted to your own private tutoring session once the tutor is free to work with you. 

Please remember:

  • We work with students in the order that they enter the waiting room, on a first-come, first-served basis. There may be no students in line in front of you; there may be 3 students in line in front of you. Be patient!
  • We are limiting our one-on-one sessions to 20 minutes at a time (30 minutes for writing tutoring sessions). This is so that every student gets a chance to work with a tutor.
  • You should come to the session prepared with at least one question you want to ask the tutor and ready to engage and learn. It's a good idea to have all of the things you might need for the session (your textbook, your paper(s), your questions for the tutor, any screenshots you might want to show them) prepared in advance to maximize your time.
  • Be kind to and generous with your tutor. They are doing the best they can to answer your questions. Anyone behaving inappropriately will not be allowed to continue in the session.

Announcement about Exams, Quizzes, and Projects:

Please DO NOT ask for help on quiz or exam questions or other assignments your instructors have told you not to receive outside help completing. We work with faculty to ensure students do not receive help on these assessments, and follows the Edmonds College Student Code of Conduct as it relates to Academic Dishonesty.


What if I don't have Zoom?

If you do not have Zoom downloaded to your computer, that's okay--you can use the browser version. You do not have to have a Zoom account to join in these sessions, either (though it helps!)--simply choose to join through the browser and enter your name and finish the "I am not a robot" verification process.


What if I am a student in ELA (formerly ESL) classes and want writing help?

Please note: Writing tutors currently only work with ELA (ESL) students who are enrolled in classes at levels 5 and 6. We cannot work with students who are enrolled in classes at levels 1-4.

For students in levels 5 and 6, our tutors will help you only *after* you have already received comments back from your instructor on your assignment, just the same as in our in-person writing center. Your instrutors want to see the first drafts of your assignments without help from tutors, so they can assess where your writing is without receiving help.


**Please Read**

Some of our schedules are still in development, but the list below represents most of our offerings this quarter. We do experience last minute scheduling changes sometimes, but strive to have this list be as up-to-date as possible. 

To find a session for the class you want, look first at the day of the week and time of day you want help -- there are multiple entries for some times of day, according to various tutor schedules and subject availabilities. Look thoroughly to find your class, then click the button that goes with the session you want.
