Drop-In Tutoring and Scheduled Sessions

What is Drop-In Tutoring?

Drop-In Tutoring is like a walk-in appointment; if a tutor in the particular subject area a student needs help with is available, students can "drop-in" and get immediate assistance with a question, task, or assingment. The video below provides a step-by-step guide on how to use the Drop-In feature.
