Tutoring: 

Tutoring is available FREE online for all students in need of assistance! We know that mastering course material can be even more challenging in remote learning situations, and Wentworth is able to provide one on one and small group live tutoring.   

  • Writing tutoring available Monday through Friday, 11:00am – 4:00pm. 

  • Peer tutoring is available 11:00am – 8:00pm Monday to Thursday; and 11:00am – 3:00pm Friday. 

We are using Zoom meetings for virtual tutoring sessions.  Once an appointment is booked, a link for the session is included in the confirmation email.

Academic Honesty Workshop

Through the Academic Honesty Workshop, students will learn how to avoid plagiarism in all courses in the span of a few weeks via our online learning platform.   For any additional questions, please email jacobsonj@wit.edu or for Blackboard assistance, please visit the Blackboard site.

Learning at a Distance or Online

Learning at a distance, either in a hybrid on online fashion, creates unique challenges. A number of our distance students have set up student groups with tutors, generally arriving an hour before their class begins.  We can also arrange virtual group sessions for online and distance students.  The CAE recommends the following options for distance students:

  • Online Tutoring Appointments -- Students can set up GoToMeeting tutoring appointments with tutors in advance via our scheduling platform. Please email jacobsonj@wit.edu for assistance. 
  • Distance Writing Assistance – Please email your paper to the center. During busy times of the semester (such as during midterms and from two weeks prior to the start of final exams through the final exam period), we will return your paper within 2 business days with comments and suggestions. Please email jacobsonj@wit.edu for online writing assistance.
  • Virtual assistance – The Center for Academic Excellence offers a number of different platforms for distance tutoring.  Please contact the CAE to set up an appointment jacobsonj@wit.edu.
