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

Online writing tutoring is for assistance with writing assignments in any course and at any level. We recommend a 30-minute appointment for up to 4 double-spaced pages and a 1-hour appointment for up to 8 double-spaced pages. You can make multiple appointments for longer papers. Students must use MS Word 365 to participate in an online writing tutoring appointment. Make sure you share your document link with your tutor with editing permissions.
