Drop-In Tutoring Guidelines

  • Tutors are only able to work with three tutees at a time. You may be told there is a waitlist before you can meet with a tutor. 
  • If you fill out the Google form outside of drop-in tutoring hours, no one will contact you to meet online.
  • Drop-in tutoring will be cancelled online during course exam times. 

How to use GoBoard

After you have requested to meet with a drop-in tutor during drop-in tutoring hours, the SLC tutor you are meeting with will send you an email containing the link to access GoBoard (please note this will come to your umich email). You may be put on a waitlist, in which case you will receive further information at that time as well.

  • Use Chrome internet browser when accessing GoBoard. 
  • You can use GoBoard on an iPad app or on a web browser (use updated Chrome for the web browser). Do not use GoBoard on your cell phone.
  • Each GoBoard session is video recorded, this video recording is used only for SLC monitoring. The Tutor Program Manager will occasionally watch the videos as a way to provide feedback to tutors. Videos will NOT be used for other purposes.
  • You will be emailed a PDF of your session at the end of each session.
  • The day after your tutor session, you will be sent a survey.
