REMEMBER: Each session with the tutor can take up to 20 minutes. Please be patient and monitor your place in line so that you are ready when the tutor transfers you to the LiveLesson room. 

  1. Once you have been transferred, select Request Entry to be accepted into the room. 

On occasion, a student may appear to ‘drop’ from the queue and lose their spot in line. This typically occurs due to a weak internet connection. If you drop, try to log back in. If you continue to get dropped, call Student Technical Support at (800) 221-2720. 


Note: If your help request is outside the hours of operation, a message displays that no tutors are available at this time. When no tutors are available, cancel your request for a tutor and try again later.
