Students are encouraged to make tutoring appointments as often as necessary. To make an appointment:

Embedded Tutoring

Embedded tutoring is designed to give students a high level of academic support, thus reducing course withdrawal and failure rates and increasing pass rates in high-risk-for-failure college courses. Particular emphasis at Herkimer College through 2021 is on Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses and especially those historically difficult courses required in STEM fields and Criminal Justice degree programs. Embedded Tutoring enables both peer and professional tutoring faculty to support students by attending classes and holding outside sessions to further assist the needs of the students enrolled in the course. The embedded staff and course faculty work very closely throughout the semester to provide the best support possible to students.

Online Tutoring

Both on-campus and online students can take advantage of the ASC’s online tutoring services. The following online support services are available:

  • E-Tutor Paper Dropbox: Students can submit their papers to our E-Tutor Paper Dropbox to have them reviewed by our English/Writing Specialist. Students will receive back a Microsoft Word document with comments on how to improve their paper. Submissions should be sent to etutor@herkimer.edu.
  • Virtual Appointments: Students who cannot make it to campus for tutoring appointments can meet with a peer or professional tutor remotely. To set up a virtual appointment, contact the ASC’s front desk at (315) 574-4000.
  • Net Tutor: For night owls and students who do their best work outside of normal office hours, Herkimer works with a third-party service provider to give students access to 24/7 tutorial assistance in a variety of subjects. Net Tutor can be accessed via Generals Online. Download the instructions here.
