Liticia Salter, director of the Office of Academic Supplemental Instruction Services (OASIS), and Victoria Krawczynski, OASIS eTutor, demonstrated online tutoring methods developed in the OASIS during the 2010 Summer Institute for writing center directors.

Salter, along with US-based online tutor Krawczynski, developed an online writing tutoring process using Skype. Salter and Krawczynski gave the attendees a real-time, step-by-step demonstration of how a typical writing tutoring session is performed with the students in Qatar. In its pilot year, online writing tutoring comprised approximately 25 percent of total writing tutoring in the OASIS.
