Writing Center Online Tutoring

Thank you for your interest in our online graduate level tutoring.

Requesting Services

Please note that there is a minimum 2-day turnaround between the time a tutor receives an assignment and when the tutor can discuss the paper with you.

If you are interested in utilizing this service please e-mail your name, assignment, and contact information the Writing Center.

In the body of your email, be sure to include:

  • Your name, telephone number, and email address
  • A brief description of written assignment and your tutoring needs
  • Grading guidelines/assignment rubric
  • Comments from your professor/peers
  • Any drafts of your assignment

After we receive your appointment request we will route your information to the correct person and contact you to set up your online tutoring session.

Tutoring Services

After the tutor reviews your paper/project, the tutor will reach out to you to “meet” you over a webinar session (this online session similar to a Skype conversation where you will be able to hear and interact with each other while reviewing the assignment). 

The online conversation about your writing is the most effective way for you to improve and enhance your writing process. It is HIGHLY recommended that you set up your online tutoring session early and not wait until 1-2 days before your assignment is due. Remember availability is limited for the online tutoring service.

Online tutoring sessions typically last 30 minutes. During expected high volume weeks such as exam times, these tutoring sessions will be scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please plan accordingly!


If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Writing Center
