Is online tutoring different than face-to-face tutoring?
Well, not really. The main difference between regular and online tutoring is where the actual tutoring happens. Regular tutoring happens in the Writing Center. Online tutoring can happen anywhere you have a computer and Internet access. That's right! You no longer have to come into the actual Writing Center to get tutoring (unless you want to). When it comes to how the tutor works with you, it is the same as face-to-face tutoring. Our online tutors can help with any stage of the writing process and any writing related questions you may have.
Absolutely! Many of our DLAs have been designed so that you can do them completely from home. Just make sure that if you want to see a tutor online to complete your DLA that you complete all of your work on the DLA Word file. For help scheduling an online tutoring appointment for your DLA, please read the directions below. We look forward to "seeing" you online!
