NEW Summer Online Tutoring 

In the Summer 2020 semester, select courses will be available for online tutoring in the evenings. To schedule an online tutoring session, please consult WC Online Guide for Students. Online tutoring sessions will be conducted through our scheduling software, WCOnline. This program is how you normally schedule tutoring sessions and does not require you to download any special software in advance to your session.  Here is some general information about online tutoring: 

  • To start an online session (assuming you have scheduled a session), you will log into WCOnline and navigate to that appointment. Once you have opened that appointment, you will click "Start or Join Online Consultation" to begin your virtual session.  
  • You should have a webcam and a microphone.  Most computers that have webcams also have built-in microphones. 
  • You do not need to download any special software or programs before your appointment.
  • We recommend that you use headphones during your appointment because it will make it easier to communicate with your tutor.
  • You should have a reliable internet connection.  Since the appointment will be conducted online, it is important to have a strong internet connection.

If you have any questions about online tutoring, feel free to call the Learning Center at 816-501-4052 or email us at learningcenter@rockhurst.edu.
