Feeling overwhelmed, stuck on a question, or not sure where to even start?
It’s ok. We all get stuck sometimes.
Whether you’re struggling with writing and grammar, or maths in electrotechnology – accounting, statistics or referencing – you can get immediate, one-to-one help from an expert tutor.
CDU is piloting this free service to those students enrolled in first year 100 level units. Find YourTutor by logging in through Learnline.
How does it work?
On-demand experts are waiting online to help you with your questions. As soon as you need it, you can log in and be connected live via online chat.
How do I know if I can access Your Tutor?
If you are enrolled in a 100 Level Unit you can access Your Tutor.
This is typically the first level of undergraduate education. It provides disciplinary foundations and an introduction to studying in that field.
The first number in each unit code indicates the year level at which the subject is taught.
So, if your unit code starts with the number 1 this free service is available to you now.
Check your Learnline unit site and look out for the link to YourTutor. You will find the link in the Unit Navigation.
Support is available from Sunday to Friday 3pm – midnight (Australian Central Standard Time ACST)
What happens when you connect live to an online tutor?
First, you tell ‘Your Tutor’ what subject and year level you need help with, and submit the question you'd like to discuss. They will then match you with the next available specialist in that subject. In 95% of cases students are connected within 5 minutes.
Communicate with your tutor using typed chat - this keeps you anonymous and gives you a written transcript of the session which you can keep.
Use the interactive whiteboard to draw more visual information such as mathematical equations.
