Select “Walk-in Online Tutoring” or if you want a session for a later time, select, “Make an Appointment.” An email with a link will be sent to you shortly. If you do not receive an email, contact us at 323-405-4385.

Do I need to sign up with Zoom in order to see my tutor?

No, but we recommend that you download the app. You may still meet with your tutor as long as you open the email that is sent to you and you follow the link.

If you need help with zoom, click here: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/206618765-Zoom-Video-Tutorials

What type of device or computer will I need to have?

A desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone with an internet connection will do just fine. Most of these devices have webcams, microphones, and speakers, but if your device does not have access to a camera, microphone, and/or speaker, we can still communicate with you via chat.

What do you recommend I use to write my assignments?

We prefer GoogleDocs (Google Drive) but you are welcome to use Word (One Drive) if you prefer.

Where can you be reached if I have questions or need help troubleshooting?

Call or text 323-405-4385 during our normal working hours.

South Gate Writing Center

Is there still writing tutoring at South Gate? 

Yes. When classes go remote on March 30, so will the SG Writing Center. Big changes, for sure. But what hasn’t changed is the writing center staff. We are all still here. 

How do I get tutoring?

Some classes will have embedded tutors. If you want to get tutoring outside of class, your tutor will have contact information so that you can set up an appointment. We highly recommend downloading the Zoom app if you haven’t already. Very accessible and most instructors/tutors will use this. If you’re nervous, don’t worry. Tutors will walk you through the process. (However, please be patient. We are also learning.) For those classes that do not have embedded tutors, online tutoring services are still available. Tutors are totally accessible. Just email them to make an appointment and they will send you a link to click on for your tutoring session.

What are your hours?

At the moment, we are still trying to figure that out. Our tutors have varying schedules so it’s up to you whose schedule fits best with yours.

How long are tutoring sessions? 

Sessions are around 45 minutes. Not only are there individual sessions but you can also receive group tutoring. In addition, we will offer workshops TBA. 

What software/programs do you recommend I use for my assignments? 

Google Docs would be preferred but you can use Word. 

If there is a problem of concern in any tutoring session, whom do I contact? 

Contact Beth Musgrave. She can be reached at musgraej@elac.edu
