Tutoring for Online Classes and Satellite Campus Students (Owasso, Glenpool, etc.)
Face-to-face interaction is always best when giving or receiving assistance in writing, but we do understand the difficulties that come with traveling to one of our campuses. Thus, online tutoring can be an effective way to receive feedback, but there is only so much that can be done with an electronic submission. So, if you can come see us, please do!

  • Log into the owl.tulsacc.edu page to make an appointment. You can choose between email feedback replies or video conferencing online via Zoom.

ONLINE EMAIL FEEDBACK:
When you make an appointment, choose any available slot as early as the next day. We will do our best to respond in 24 hours.

  • Upload your paper and assignment directions.
  • Choose a specific focus from the list, and tell us your instructor and type of assignment.
  • A tutor will send you an email with valuable feedback for revision and perhaps even some handouts for guidance.
  • We do not proofread essays for grammar or punctuation errors. This would be “fixing” the essay for you. We will, however, point out these types of errors and provide you with the tools for proofreading your paper.

VIDEO CONFERENCES:

When you make an appointment, choose the time that fits best with your schedule to go live with a tutor.

  • Upload your paper and assignment directions.
  • The Zoom meeting information is linked in the appointment form.
  • At the tme of your appointment, log into Zoom and join your personal meeting. 
  • Your tutor will share their screen and discuss the paper with you.
  • These sessions are no more than 45 minutes long, so make sure you have specific questions available.

AFTER HOURS:

While TCC offers these personal tutoring options, if it's after hours, the college also has a contract with Smarthinking tutoring services that is a 24-hour service. Their link for online tutoring is located in Blackboard.
