Online Tutoring

Online tutoring services are available all day and night (24 hours/7 days a week) through NetTutor on Blackboard and can be found in the Content area of your Mesa course.

There are two online options:
1) Submit a paper for feedback within 48 hours (usually it's much quicker).
2) Ask questions and talk to a tutor live.

Both of these options are available if you follow the steps below. If you do not have an instructor who uses Blackboard or who has not activated "NetTutor" on Blackboard, then please send an email to to be enrolled.
