Welcome to the online section of the Department of History Online Writing Tutors Program @ FIU. We invite you to make an appointment below, but do make sure to keep a close eye on the other instructions. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. The online tutors try to make this option just as convenient, if not more so, than the in-person tutoring within the Department of History on campus. We hope we can help you this semester.
~ Eric Rivas, Ricardo Pelegrin Taboada, Ross Nedervelt, and Paul Burkart, the online tutors.
PLEASE READ, AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW:
Make an appointment below.

Please familiarize yourself with "Google Hangouts," a video and document screen-sharing service that the History Tutors is using for these sessions. "Hangouts" is an application that you should have free access to through your FIU Gmail account. (For instruction on how to access "Hangouts" through Gmail see the following link, https://support.google.com/hangouts/answer/3115176?hl=en).
We aim to keep the form and structure of the tutoring period as close as possible to the traditional in-person tutoring you may already be familiar with. The session will last as long as 50-60 minutes, depending on the amount of feedback you need, and you will be asked to complete a short survey from the Department of History. If you have any other questions about the online tutoring process, feel free to e-mail our online tutors at email@example.com.
Please schedule one session at a time. Multiple appointments scheduled in advance will be canceled in order to accommodate as many students as possible.
If you cannot make it for your appointment, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. The Writing Tutors will only allow 1 no-shows, or same-day cancellations, before you will be forced to contact one of the Writing Tutors Directors to make any new appointments.
Unfortunately, we can only provide tutoring assistance for Department of History papers.
