SCAA Online Tutoring Services
The SCAA offers tutoring services to students taking online courses, as well as to those who cannot come to campus at the times the SCAA is open.
> eTutoring provides online tutoring,synchronous and asynchrous, for a variety of courses, including some subject areas not currently available at the SCAA.
> The SCAA OWL (below) allows students to submit writing assignments (up to 6 double spaced pages in length) and receive feedback from a SCAA tutor, usually within 48 hours. Both services are FREE to all matriculated CSUEB students. NOTE: eTutoring and the OWL are open for the Spring Quarter from Monday, April 8, until Friday, June 7 2013.
SCAA Online Writing Lab - OWL HERE
The OWL provides feedback for your writing if you can't make it to campus to work with a tutor in person. You can submit a draft of your work and an OWL tutor will review it and provide helpful feedback. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE OWL TUTORS DO NOT EDIT, CORRECT, OR REWRITE YOUR PAPER BUT WILL PROVIDE HELPFUL COMMENTS ON HOW YOUR WRITING CAN BE IMPROVED.
- SUBMITTED PAPERS LIMITED TO SIX DOUBLE SPACED PAGES
- INCLUDE A DESCRIPTION OR COPY OF THE ASSIGNMENT WITH YOUR DRAFT (MANDATORY)
- SUBMISSION MUST BE DIRECTLY RELATED TO A CLASS THAT YOU'RE CURRENTLY ENROLLED IN AT CSUEB
IMPORTANT : THE SCAA OWL MAKES EVERY EFFORT TO RETURN YOUR PAPERS WITHIN 48 HOURS AFTER SUBMISSION. HOWEVER, THE OWL TUTORS DO NOT WORK ON WEEKENDS OR IF THERE IS A HOLIDAY WHEN CSUEB IS CLOSED. AS A RESULT, THE OWL REPLY WILL TAKE ADDITIONAL TIME BEFORE YOUR PAPER IS RETURNED. ALSO, AT CERTAIN HEAVY USE TIMES OF EACH QUARTER (MID-TERMS AND FINALS), THE RESPONSE TIME MAY BE LONGER. PLEASE ANTICIPATE THESE TIME LIMITATIONS WHEN YOU SUBMIT YOUR WORK, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE WORKING WITH A DEADLINE FROM YOUR INSTRUCTOR.
