We have developed an online booking system to connect NIC students with peer tutors. This guide will walk you through setting up your online schedule as well as provide you with information on where you can meet, payroll and how to contact your peer tutor advisors.
Setting up Your Online Schedule
Using the LibCal software, you can set up your hours of availability, receive updates about new bookings and cancelations, and view upcoming appointments.
Click HERE for instructions on how to set up your availability.
There are several places on campus that you can meet with your tutee. If you choose to meet in the NIC Library, there are a few options from which to choose.
As a peer tutor you have access to Room D222 in Discovery Hall at the Comox Valley campus. This room has 6 tables that are available to be booked by tutors only. You can check out a key to D222 at the Library & Learning Commons. Please bring your student ID to check out the key.

The Library has group study rooms that can be booked online, via the Library & Learning Commons website, up to 1 week ahead. Tutees are responsible for booking these rooms. If a study room is unavailable, the Library offers many common areas for you to meet with tutees such as group tables and the computer lab.
Online Tutor Sessions Via Skype
If you receive a request from a tutee that resides at a different campus than you, it is possible to still meet with them using Skype. Skype is loaded onto a laptop called the Surface and is available at each of the campus libraries.
Important to Note:
Please contact Erin McConomy if you would like to offer online tutoring services
The Surface can be booked for up to 2 hours at a time, 1 week in advance.
You will need to book one Surface for you and one for your tutee.
You and your tutee will need your library cards to check out the Surface.
You can book the group study rooms when you are using the Surface. Click HERE to book the Surface.
Remember that each campus has different operating hours. Make sure that the library is going to be open at both your location and the tutee's location for your Skype tutor session.
