Online Tutoring from the Writing Center

The Mary G. Walsh Writing Center is offering a full schedule of remote appointments.

ETutoring remote appointments allow students to upload their assignments for a tutor's review and comment. 

Online tutoring is as close as you can come to a having session in the Writing Center without being here in person. It includes a chat function that allows you and the writer to look at, make marks on, and chat about a document simultaneously. There are optional video and audio functions, too, like those you’d find in Skype, which allow you and the writer to have a genuine discussion.
