Online Tutoring - Summer 2020

As a response to Covid-19, Durham Tech students may meet with any of the professional tutors online using Zoom software during posted hours. Services are free, and no appointment is necessary during the posted times. After a student’s first tutoring visit, a referral/notification will be sent to his or her instructor. Qualified instructors offer tutoring in the designated subjects listed below, including developmental, general education, and university transfer.

In addition to face-to-face tutoring in the Center for Academic Excellence, current Durham Tech students have access to online tutors all hours of the day through Upswing.

Students can access Upswing by using the link through the button below this message using the same username and password that they use for Self-Service. Once logged in, use the search box at the top of the Upswing Virtual Learning platform to search for a tutor in the desired subject area.

An appointment to meet online with an online tutor can be scheduled. If a tutor is available immediately, there will be a link next to the tutor profile saying “Get Tutored Now.” Having a computer that is equipped with a camera and a microphone is preferable but not necessary. If a student does not have access to a computer with a camera and microphone, they may email or call 919-536-7232, ext 2404 to make arrangements for the use of one.
