Online Tutoring Service

NetTutor Logo TM

NetTutor is an online tutoring service integrated into Canvas that provides students the support they need, whenever they need it, for lots of different subjects, and on any type of device. The Academic Success Center  (ASC) purchased this platform for Richland students so they can access this service wherever they have a computer and internet connection. The ASC hopes this will fill in the gaps of face-to-face tutoring by offering tutoring for a wider variety of subjects as well as evening and weekend tutoring.

General NetTutor FAQ


Students are allowed 8 hours of tutoring per summer semester and 16 hours of tutoring per fall and spring semester. These hours can be used at the discretion of the student. NetTutor rounds to the nearest minute. Students can use as much or little time as needed per session.
