The Writers' Studio now offers online tutoring, which allows
students to work with a tutor without having to come in to the
Studio. In order to set up an online appointment:
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with
Online Tutoring in the subject line.
- Include a brief description of the
assignment in the body of the e-mail, along with your
professor's first and last
name, and the course name and
number. Indicate what areas you'd
like the tutor to focus on (organization, thesis, development,
transitions, etc.) Remember that this service is not here for
proofreading alone. If you have any other questions or concerns for
the tutor, feel free to include them.
- Attach your paper, and if
possible a copy of the assignment or
prompt. Make sure
the attachments are Microsoft Word files (.doc, .docx).
- You will receive a confirmation email from a tutor indicating
when your paper will be ready. Expect a 48-hour or
sooner turnaround for papers less than 10
pages long (subject to change depending on the volume of requests
during peak hours). Papers more than 10 pages may take longer, but
the tutor will let you know when the work will be completed.
When the online tutoring session has been completed, you will
receive an email from the Studio. Your paper will be returned with
the tutor's suggestions in the margins (using the Track Changes and
Review functions in MS Word), along with any additional
