If you are unable to virtually visit the writing center during a time we have an appointment available, you could try e-tutoring instead.
Your will make an appointment for Etutoring and attach your draft. During the etutoring appointment, your tutor will read your draft, then write you a note that summarizes what they saw as the strengths of your draft, and offers your a few suggestions for revision. The tutor will then upload this note to your appointment as a separate document. You will receive an email when this has been completed; expect that to be toward the end of the hour your etutoring appointment is set for.
How to make an eTutoring appointment:
1.) Login to wconline. On our online scheduler for writing tutors, look at the tutor names to find one that has "eTutoring" indicated.
Find an open appointment slot for that tutor (note: you do not have to be available to meet the tutor during that appointment time; the appointment time is when the tutor will read and respond to the draft you send us). Click on the appointment.
2.) When the appointment box opens, you will see a "Meet online?" option below the client information box. Choose "Yes--schedule e-tutoring" for an e-tutoring appointment.
3.) When you save your appointment, a window will open that asks if you want to attach a document to your appointment. You may attach more than one document, so if you have an assignment sheet or any other kind of written instructions, please upload that along with your draft. If your draft is ready when you make the appointment, go ahead and upload a Word doc, pdf, or Powerpoint document when the box prompts you to.
If you don't want to attach a draft yet, don't worry! You may upload a document later, as long as it is before the start time of your e-tutoring session. Just log back into WCOnline. At the top left side of the screen, you will see "Welcome, Your Name." Hover on the arrow next to your name to see a drop down list that includes "My Appointments." Click on the appointment you want to attach a file to. Scroll down and click "edit appointment". The next screen will give you the option to attach a file.
4.) When your tutor has finished writing a response to your draft, you will receive an email with that response attached as a Word document.
