About NetTutor

  • This is a free service for currently enrolled FSC students, offering individual drop-in tutoring sessions. 
  • NetTutor is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. While some subject areas (such as Math and Writing) often have tutors available 24/7, others have set days and times. Please see the subject specific tutoring schedule posted in NetTutor.
  • NetTutor tutors do not work for the Tutoring Center or Farmingdale State College. They are employees of Link-Systems International Inc. (NetTutor) and hold a minimum of a Bachelor's degree. Most of tutors hold advanced degrees in their subject specialties. All tutors undergo training prior to tutoring online.
  • Students do not need to book an appointment for a NetTutor session. While this is a drop-in service, there may be a wait in the queue, especially during peak times. Please wait patiently as you will be notified via a bell sound when a tutor is available to assist you.
  • In order to remain accessible to all students, sessions are limited to one (1) hour at a time per subject.
  • Tutors are NOT permitted to complete any assignments for you (such as homework/projects), nor can they assist with graded material (such as take-home exams). Please do not ask it of them or expect them to do so. Failure to comply can result in loss of online tutoring privileges.
  • Farmingdale State College staff are permitted to view and monitor all online tutoring sessions for quality control and compliance with College policies.

 

Course availability

  • NetTutor provides assistance with most general education courses available at the College.

Student responsibilities

Similar to the on-campus tutoring centers, students have responsibilities associated with utilizing NetTutor online tutoring services. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • All students should attend their class sessions, take notes, and complete their assigned readings. Students should consult a tutor after first seeking assistance from their course instructor. Students should come to their session prepared with specific questions and/or concepts in which further assistance is needed. Tutors are not substitutes for attending class and they are not responsible for teaching course material or completing course assignments.
  • Students who utilize online tutoring services are required to follow all College policies and procedures, including the College's policy on Academic Integrity. Failure to comply may result in a referral to your course instructor and the Dean of Students office.
  • Tutors are NOT permitted to complete any assignments for you (such as homework/projects), nor can they assist with graded material (such as take-home exams). Please do not ask it of them or expect them to do so. Failure to comply can result in loss of online tutoring privileges.
  • Bring relevant textbooks and classroom notes to each session. You will be expected to have read the text or notes and have prepared questions for your tutor. Online tutors do not have course materials (including textbooks) with them.
