In addition to face-to-face tutoring in the CAE, students now have access to online tutors through Upswing. Students can access Upswing by going to the following link: https://durhamtech.upswing.io/
Below are a few details about the online tutoring experience:
In order to log-in students can use the same username and password that they use for Sakai . Once students have logged in they can use the search box at the top of the Upswing Virtual Learning platform to search for a tutor that can assist them in the subject area of their choice.
Students can Schedule an Appointment with an online tutor or if a tutor is available immediately there will be a link next to their profile saying “Get Tutored Now”.
Having a computer that is equipped with a camera and a microphone is preferable but not necessary. There is a computer in both Wynn 1310 and Orange County 108 equipped with a camera and microphone for student use.
Students under 18 years of age
The Upswing online tutoring system may be used by students who are currently enrolled in a curriculum course at Durham Tech and are over 18 years old. If a student is under 18 years old and would like to seek tutoring assistance online please have them contact me by e-mail or call 919-536-7232 ext. 2404.
