Online Tutoring & Resources
Online Tutoring is available through STAR-NY . This service is FREE for all students enrolled in courses at SUNY Canton.
For summer term, writing and math will be available from May 26th through August 15th.
STAR-NY is a consortium of SUNY Colleges and Universities that share resources and tutors in order to offer students free and accessible online tutoring services. By engaging in STAR-NY tutoring, you may work with a tutor from another institution. However, all tutors are identified as qualified and are trained before working for STAR-NY.
The goal of STAR-NY is to engage students in the learning process, not to teach. Tutors use Socratic questioning to help students think about their assignments and gain insights into their subjects. All students who use STAR-NY tutoring should be familiar with the STAR-NY Academic Integrity Statement.
In addition to the writing assistance offered through STAR-NY, SUNY Canton also offers access to Grammarly, an online proofreading and editing tool that helps writers develop sentence-level writing skills, reinforce revision habits, and detect plagiarism.
