Online Tutoring

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

We believe that the most effective writing tutorial is face-to-face, however we also want to accommodate writers who can't always make it to the Center for a tutoring appointment. (Because of a variety of reasons writers may prefer online tutoring—lack of transportation, last-minute questions, bad weather, discomfort in our space.) As an alternative to in-person appointments, we offer online tutoring using audio/video chat and an online workspace where writers and tutors can work on a project collaboratively.
