Zoom Tips Prior to Your Appointment

Setting up your Zoom account

There is an automatic delay when setting up your USask Zoom account. It’s important to set up your account well in advance of the first time you want to use your account. Visit our Zoom tips page for more information.

Sharing documents for tutoring or collaboration

We suggest that you save a file that you want to share in Microsoft OneDrive and temporarily allow others to access that file while you are having an audio conversation in a webconferencing app like Zoom or WebEx. The link for the file can be shared in the chat window. View our instructional video.

 

The USask Tutoring Network launches in September. This portal allows students to book free writing or math and stats appointments with tutors via Zoom.

Math & Stats Help

Online Meeting: Book a 25 or 55-minute appointment to talk one-to-one with a Math and Stats Help tutor.

We are working hard to get a new appointment-booking platform ready. In the meantime, please email mathhelpcentre@usask.ca with (1) the course you would like help with, and (2) when you would like to meet. Please provide several options for meeting times.

Writing Help

Tutors can help you to

  • clarify your goals
  • improve your organization and writing style
  • learn how to outline, draft, and revise your work
  • practice the conventions of writing in your discipline
  • notice patterns of error in your writing, which will help you to focus your editing and proofreading
  • understand the rules of grammar, sentence structure, and punctuation.

Please note that Writing Centre tutors cannot edit or proofread your paper. They can teach you about writing using your work as an example of writing areas of strength and weakness.
