Embedded Tutoring

Embedded tutoring is a program designed to provide Herkimer’s students with additional opportunities to take advantage of academic support services. Students enrolled in courses with an embedded tutor have access to a peer or professional tutor who acts as a supplemental resource for the class. Embedded tutors:

  • Attend class and take quizzes or tests just like a student would
  • Learn with and alongside students
  • Hold study sessions once a week to cover important topics discussed in class
  • Collaborate with faculty to best support students’ needs

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 through Microsoft Teams. To set up a virtual appointment, visit herkimer.accudemia.net or contact the 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.
