How to Setup an Online Tutoring Session

In response to Northeastern’ s decision to move all class instruction online the Peer Tutoring Program (PTP) will also move to ONLINE TUTORING ONLY. PTP is committed to offering high quality of tutoring services regardless the method of delivery.

The Peer Tutoring Program will offer an online tutoring only option to students starting on March 12th.

The online tutoring platform is offered through Tutoring Matching Services via GoBoard.

To schedule an online tutoring session, you will follow the same instructions as booking an in-person tutoring session using our Tutoring WebApp via myNortheastern student portal under Tutoring.

Once you have submitted a request for an online tutoring session you will receive two emails: 

  1. The Confirmation email will be generated from the Tutoring WebApp with the usual appointment information; however, it will also include a unique URL link to your tutoring digital environment.
  2. The second will be from your peer tutor with a Link to the Peer Tutoring Program Website where you can find instructions on how to use online tutoring via GoBoard (online tutoring platform)

What happens next?

  1. Make sure that you are using a Google Chrome browser to access your GoBoard digital environment; this is the best browser for this program. GoBoard is not compatible with Internet Explorer or Safari.
  2. Prior to your scheduled session, both students and tutors are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the technology and the features available on GoBoard.
