Online Tutoring

Can't make it into the Center? The Writing Center offers online tutoring!

For a variety of reasons, writers may prefer online tutoring—living far away, lack of transportation, or bad weather, for example. We want to accommodate writers who can't always make it to the Center for a tutoring appointment.  We believe that the most effective writing tutorial is face-to-face; therefore, we encourage anyone making an online appointment to use audio and video during their session with their tutor.  As an alternative to in-person appointments, we offer this online workspace where writers and tutors can work on a project collaboratively.
