About Online Tutoring

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 we provide 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 submit only one piece of writing per week.

How to make a submission to the online tutor:

  1. Please click on the Online Tutor Request Form link.
  2. Complete the form and upload your paper in .doc or .docx format.
  3. You will receive an email to confirm receipt.
  4. If you do not receive a confirmation email within 24 hours, call Chris Cormier Hayes (617) 521 2495 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting            (617) 521 2495       or send an email
