Email Tutoring

Email Tutoring

Email tutoring is a great option for students interested in getting feedback from a writing center tutor remotely.  Here are some things you should know about working with an online tutor:

1.  While your tutor will be happy to help you improve your grammar and proofreading skills, she will not “fix” your paper for you.  You will get the most out of your online session if you clarify what specific issues you'd like for her to  focus on in her review. (Some examples: paragraph development, introduction/conclusion, overall organization, sentence level correctness, incorporating sources.)

2.  The turn-around time will be within 1 full business day during the 6-week summer sessions and at least 2 business days during the fall and spring semesters.  So, please plan ahead. 

3.  Use your Madison College Email and make sure to include:

  • Your Student ID 
  • Your work attached as a Word document
  • If possible, a description of the assignment - feel free to attach a copy of the actual assignment.

Okay, now you're ready!
