Types of Tutoring

Video Tutoring
During a video tutoring session, you will meet with a tutor through a video conference called Microsoft Teams, which is similar to Zoom, so you must be available during your appointment time. You must download the Microsoft Teams app to participate.

Online Tutoring
Online tutoring is offered as a secondary type of session for students who are unavailable during our operating hours. You will attach your Microsoft Word document to your appointment form, and a tutor will download it and send it back to you via email with thorough comments on it. You do not have to be available during your appointment time.

Current COVID-19 Policies
The Writer’s Center is not currently offering in-person appointments, but you may make a video tutoring appointment during which you will meet face-to-face with your tutor in a virtual setting, or you may schedule an online appointment, and a tutor will comment on your draft and send feedback to you through email.

Online Tutoring Tutorial

If you would like to reschedule or simply cancel an appointment, you can do it yourself by returning to the WC schedule, clicking on your appointment, and clicking “Cancel this Appointment.” You may schedule another appointment as desired. You are also welcome to contact The Writer’s Center by phone or email and we will be happy to cancel or reschedule for you. PLEASE NOTE: The Writer’s Center administrators reserve the right to move your appointment to another tutor as needed in accordance with our policies (we will not change the time of your appointment, however). If you would like to work with the specific tutor that you selected for your appointment, please let us know when you make the appointment by including your request in the appointment form under “What would you like to work on today?”
PLEASE NOTE:
  • All tutoring sessions are 45 minutes long. We cannot guarantee that tutors will be able to help you with every aspect of your paper within the session time period. Tutors will focus on the most pressing issues at hand and will encourage you to come back later as needed.
  • You may only schedule one appointment per day. For example, if you know you would like to have multiple sessions on a given day, go ahead and schedule one appointment, then you can schedule a return appointment after that session as long as you make revisions to your paper between appointments.
  • Please make sure you attach your draft and the assignment sheet as .doc or .docx format so tutors can review them electronically.
  • To make the most of your Writer’s Center session, schedule appointments well before your paper is due because you’ll need plenty of time to revise your paper after the session.
