1) Send essay drafts, assignment sheets or prompts, and formatting guidelines (in .doc or .docx file formats) to Eng_tutors@nwosu.edu.  

2) Tutors need at least 24 hours for written feedback.

What Can I Expect from my Tutor?

Tutors will not grade your papers as to whether they are "good" or "bad." Tutors can give you tips on grammar and mechanics, as well as helping you to revise your ideas and organization. If you need to improve certain elements of your writing, your tutor will focus on patterns of errors and highlight them throughout the text to make it easier for you to spot and adjust on your own. Tutors do their best to explain problem areas in your paper so that you can improve your whole writing technique, not just the particular draft you brought in. Tutors DO NOT just proofread your work. Your tutor will give suggestions and ask questions to help improve your drafts, not just tell you what to "fix." We hope you have a positive experience with your English tutor! Please fill out the survey below to let us know about your tutoring session.
