Online Tutoring for Writing

The ASC is here to support your remote learning needs! We offer remote tutoring for writing via two options, as indicated in our appointment system:

  • Online - synchronous appointments, where you meet with your consultant in real-time using a combination of WC Online, Google Docs, Zoom, and/or Webex.

    • Recommended for learners who benefit from live interaction & discussion

  • E-Tutoring - asynchronous appointments, where there is no real-time meeting; instead, you upload an assignment along with your questions, struggles, etc., and receive feedback straight to your ULV email

    • Recommended for learners who can articulate their own needs and challenges, and who have busy schedules

Once you make your appointment, you will receive a confirmation email with more detailed instructions on how to complete your appointment.
