Distance Tutoring

If a tutor cannot be found for your class at your campus or you are taking classes online, we may be able to connect you with a tutor using Distance Tutoring. 

 Distance Tutoring allows Fox Valley Technical College to reach students in two locations in such a realistic way that it feels as if the tutor and tutee are in the same room. In each room, to facilitate instruction, is a computer, a phone line, and a Bamboo Splash Tablet (for math), and a connection through freescreensharing to share what is being performed on the tutor and tutee’s computer.

 Fox Valley Technical College has available to students: 

  • Four Distance Tutoring stations, one at each of the Outreach sites (Waupaca, Clintonville, Chilton and Wautoma).
  • Two Distance Tutoring stations on the Appleton Campus (located in the TLC and ESS) and one on the Oshkosh Campus (located in the TLC). 
  • Scheduling a tutoring session via Distance Tutoring is easy.  Simply click on Distance Tutor Request   and complete the email request form from the menu on the right.  You will hear from us within 2 business days of submitting your request.
