eTutoring: Submit Your Writing Online

You may submit your writing for tutors to review. Tutors will NOT proofread; instead, they will make point out strengths and areas in need of improvement, ask you questions to help you think more critically about your writing and audience, and provide resources you can use to improve as a writer. 

You can expect your work to be returned within 2-4 days, not counting weekends.

CLICK HERE to submit your writing to the tutors for feedback.


eTutoring is UNAVAILABLE until the beginning of spring semester.
