UNO LEARNING Resource center offering online tutoring
Sometimes it feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day. Between work, school, and extracurricular activities, you may think you don’t have the time for tutoring, or the only extra time you have is too late in the day to meet with a tutor.
We’re happy to offer you online tutoring through NetTutor! Covering a number of different topics, this online tutoring can help you pass your classes AND work around your busy schedule. Also, you’ll find a list of apps and online tools to help you with your coursework.
What is NetTutor?
NetTutor is an online tutoring platform that connects students with the academic support they need from experienced and qualified tutors. Tutoring is facilitated with an online whiteboard and is easy-to use. You are able to type, draw, and use symbols specific to the subject on the online whiteboard. Your tutor will be able to correspond with you and help you when you get stuck.
Who can use NetTutor?
At this time, NetTutor is available free to all UNO students.
Who will be tutoring me?
Your tutors have a bachelor’s degree, and most have an advanced degree in their subject specialty. All tutors have teaching and tutoring experience and are trained in cutting edge teaching and tutoring methods. You will find that the tutors through NetTutor are empathetic, patient, and supportive, and that they connect with you in a meaningful way to ensure that you succeed.
How do I access NetTutor?
Currently, to access NetTutor, you log in through moodle. Within your course, look for a link that says “Student Support Resources”. Once you see that, you should be able to easily connect with a tutor. For trouble with access, contact the Learning Resource Center (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Live one-on-one tutoring and the Q & A Center uses an online whiteboard. In the whiteboard, you can type, draw, enter symbols, pictures, and more. There is a chat feature on the side where you and your tutor can talk. If you have a disability that requires text-to-speech software, the online whiteboard may not be compatible with your software. Contact M. Shannon Williamson and she can set your account to accessibility mode.
