UMKC Tutoring

MARCH 13, 2020 UPDATE

UMKC Tutoring has tutors available to help with your classes by appointment and drop-ins via Zoom only. You can schedule an appointment and see times for drop-ins for your course on UMKC Connect. If you need help scheduling an appointment or have questions, you may email umkctutoring@umkc.edu or call 816.235.1179 during business hours.


Online Tutoring with UMKC Tutors Using Zoom

For the remainder of the Summer 2020 semester, all drop-ins and appointments will be conducted through Zoom. This ensures the safety of our staff and students and provides accessibility to our services for those students who are not on campus.


For Appointments:

Sign up for the appointment you want on UMKC Connect. (See Connect Guide here.)

1.    You must sign up at least 12 hours prior to the appointment, and are encouraged to select two back-to-back appointments for a total of 60 minutes because tutoring will take longer as we all learn to use the technology.

2.    You will receive a confirmation email from UMKC Connect. Then the tutor will follow-up with an Outlook Calendar Invite that contains the link you should click on to join them at the time of the appointment.

To ensure the quality of our tutoring, all appointments will be recorded by the tutor.


For Drop-ins:

Students can access the Drop-in Zoom meeting room Monday through Thursday from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm by clicking on this link.

1.    Please consult UMKC Connect (see Connect Guide here) to know when a tutor for your class is on shift.

2.    When you enter the Drop-in Zoom meeting room you will be signed into UMKC Connect and asked to wait in a waiting room with fellow students waiting for their tutor. Shortly after, you will be moved to a separate break out room where you and the tutor will have your own virtual space to work.

3.    When you are done working with the tutor you will return to the main room to sign out.


Accessing your appointment or drop-ins through Zoom:

1.    You must have Zoom downloaded on the computer/laptop/tablet you will use for the session. We recommend you download it on any electronic devices you have with cameras and microphone/speaker setups to give you flexibility in how you communicate with the tutor.

a.    See this guide to accessing Zoom on your devices.

b.    When the time of the meeting comes, click on the link your tutor sent you if it is an appointment or this link to access drop-ins. The tutor should be able to hear you when you get into the meeting, but they won't be able to see you until you click on the image of a camera in the bottom menu bar that has a red line through it.

c.    If you have any issues using Zoom during your appointment please use Zoom chat to contact your tutor, call the UMKC Call Center at 816-235-2000, or email umkctutoring@umkc.edu.

d.    To learn more about using Zoom review these short online tutorials.

If you have any difficulties making appointments or understanding how we use UMKC Connect or Zoom for tutoring please contact us by email at umkctutoring@umkc.edu or by phone at 816-235-1179.
