Online Appointments

The ACT has two types of online appointments for specific types of tutoring subjects. Please read the following sections for more information and instructions.

Making and Participating in an ACT Live Online Tutoring Appointment for Math and Science

Live online tutoring appointments are primarily for math and science tutoring; however, students are welcome to use this method for any help other than assistance with writing. Students must use Google Hangouts via their CSU account to participate in an online live appointment. Prior to making a live online appointment, please watch "Making and Participating in an ACT Live Online Tutoring Appointment" and read the instructions "Making and Participating in an ACT Live Online Tutoring Appointment - STUDENTS."

Making and Participating in an ACT Online Writing Tutoring Appointment

Online writing tutoring is for assistance with writing assignments any course and at any level. We recommend 1 hour appointments (2 30-minute appointments back to back) for up to 8 pages, and multiple appointments for more than 8 pages. Students must use Google Drive to participate in an online writing tutoring appointment. Prior to making a live online appointment, please watch "Making and Participating in an ACT Online Writing Appointment" and read the instructions "Making and Participating in an ACT Online Writing Tutoring Appointment - STUDENTS".
