Online Writing Center Services: Meet Us Online

  • Student at a Writing Center computerYou Have Two Options for Online Writing Center Assistance

    1. Online, or synchronous tutoring. 

      • This is a live, face-to-face session with a tutor utilizing audio and video chat. This type of online tutoring requires you to log in to WCOnline at the time of your appointment and join the meeting with your tutor by clicking on your appointment in the schedule.  
    2. eTutoring, or asynchronous tutoring. 

      • This is a form of online tutoring which occurs without direct contact with your tutor. eTutoring sessions require you to log in to WCOnline before the start of your appointment time and upload your document. You can upload by clicking on your appointment in the schedule and selecting to edit. You are also able to upload your document at the time you make your appointment if you are finished working on it. eTutoring is offered this semester as a way for students without high-speed internet access to still have writing support. We recommend that all students who are able use our Online Tutoring option do so if they are able to.

    Online Writing Center sessions are conducted through WCOnline, a tutoring software that allows you to share your document with a tutor live, so you can both see changes and edits as they are made. Using your computer’s microphone, you’ll discuss and revise your paper with a tutor’s help.
