Remote Peer Tutoring Procedures

Schedule

Tutors and Writing Coaches may be limited due to current circumstances. Our peer educators are dedicated to helping their fellow students succeed and we are doing all we can to have as many tutors and writing coaches available as possible. 

Schedule with an ALTC Peer Tutor

Making Your Appointment

What You Need

In order to access virtual tutoring, you will need access to the internet and a computer with a microphone. A webcam is not necessary but will improve the experience. You can access Accudemia on a mobile device, but it will be difficult to hold a full tutoring session on a cell phone. A laptop (PC or Mac), tablet, or desktop computer is preferable.

If you are having trouble accessing Accudemia, scheduling an appointment or connecting to the Zoom session, please contact ALTC@tulane.edu and we will try and find a solution.

If you are having difficulty accessing our services due to problems with access to the internet or devices, please contact IT's service desk (504-862-8888). They will try to find a solution.

Time Zones

Please check your timezone. Accudemia will schedule appointments in Central Standard Time. You and your tutor may live in different time zones. If you schedule an appointment for 2:00 CST, and your tutor lives in New Jersey and you are in California, the appointment will start at 3:00 EST for your tutor and at 12:00 (noon) for you. 

No-Show Fees

Appointments must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance to avoid a $20 no-show fee. Excessive no-shows may result in temporary loss of scheduling privileges. Appointments can be made up to 14 days in advance but must be made at least 48 hours ahead of time.
