Online tutoring

Are you a distance student or not able to come to campus for an appointment? The CAC can help you with your academic writing and academic communication skill development through online tutoring! Our online tutor can assist you to improve your academic communication skills through face-to-face or written feedback. This feedback gives you the tools to edit your own writing and improve your overall communication.

What to expect:

  • You can receive constructive feedback on organization, your most common grammatical error patterns, the style of your paper and its clarity.
  • We do not provide grammar correction, citation correction or help with take-home exams.
  • For written feedback, we will get back to you within 24 hours of your booked timeslot (excluding weekends).
  • The tutor will give as much feedback as he or she can in the time allotted (25 minutes, or 50 minutes if two back-to-back appointments are booked).

How it works:

  • Follow the instructions in the “Online procedure 2017" document. Please remember to include your assignment guidelines and your V00#, year of study, first language, and two or three questions you'd like answered about your writing. For longer papers, please indicate the pages or sections you'd like the tutor to focus on.
