Our research is designed to tap into the potential of this record to study the overall effectiveness of email comments. In this presentation, we will discuss our work examining asynchronous email tutoring and how we determined whether tutor comments on papers emailed to our writing center were effective.
This presentation presents tools and tips gleaned from one tutoring and writing center’s experience expanding its online operations. Directly addressing concerns and misconceptions about online tutoring, it suggests best practices for developing a tutoring program that serves the needs of online students. Both synchronous and asynchronous tutoring methods are addressed, as well as accessibility concerns.
