Online Tutoring

Receiving feedback via email is for online and off-site students only.

Feedback via email takes place through an online submission instead of face-to-face in the Writing Center. You submit a piece of writing via the form on this page. The online tutor will email feedback.

Like our face-to-face tutors, the online tutor will look for patterns in your writing and comment on issues such as organization, clarity, grammar, and documentation.

Please note: We are NOT a proofreading or editing service.

Special policies for online tutoring:

  • Your paper can be no longer than 10 pages, double-spaced.
  • Your paper must be in .doc or .docx format.
  • You may only submit one paper at a time.
  • You may only submit two pieces of writing per week.
