In distance education, tutorial is one of the alternative models of learner supports to enhance student's achievement. Face to face tutorial is one of the tutorial models which is offered most. However, this tutorial has limitations, such as the qualification of tutors in each region is not the same and can only be conducted in the cities, so students in remote area cannot involve in face to face tutorial. To overcome this problem, since 2002, the Department of Mathemathics and Science Education (DMSE) – the Faculty of Teacher Training Education, Universitas Terbuka has been offering other kinds of tutorial models. They are, written and electronic tutorial. These tutorials were funded by Directorat General of Higher Education (Dirjen Dikti). The objectives of this study is (1) to get a general picture on written and electronic tutorial conducted by DMSE since 2002 to 2003 through students’ responses, scores of tutorial tasks and students’ perceptions., (2) to recommend the intitusion to improve the system of written and electronic tutorial in the future. The paper was written based on a study done by team in the Department of Mathematics and Science Education. The study shows that the outcome of written tutorial are (1) there was a decrease in the number of students responded each tutorial, (2) there was an increase in the ability to learn of the students from first tutorial to third tutorial, (3) all students were interested in joining written tutorial. On the other hand, the outcome of the electronic tutorial shows that (1) there was a decrease of students’ responses in taking this tutorial from 2002 to 2003, (2) electronic tutorial helped students in understanding modules.
