Guidelines for Online Tutoring

Tutors will only be available on assigned days and times, conducting tutoring sessions via Blackboard Collaborate in one-hour increments. C-GCC students may access Blackboard Collaborate by following these instructions. Students do not have to participate for the entire hour, but sessions will not exceed 60 minutes. Tutors will conduct multiple sessions each week, should a student’s first choice of session be filled. Tutoring schedules are found in Collaborate.

Students who do not have internet access and need tutoring assistance may leave a detailed message, including telephone contact information, for Barbara Wurtz, tutor coordinator, at 518.828.4181, extension 3429 to receive a call-in number, access code and instructions on how to participate in tutoring sessions by phone.

Students who require writing assistance or academic coaching may contact Eileen Ordu, ESL instructor and professional tutor, at eileen.ordu@sunycgcc.edu, or 518.828.4181, extension 3172.
