Tutoring sessions are held in 2 ways:
1. Face-to-face inside the Writing Center in Elizabeth Hall--by appointment or drop in.
2. Online in Google Chat through your student Wildcat Gmail inbox--by appointment or drop in -- with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Drop-in Sessions Are Face to Face or Online in Real-Time
- Log in to your student Wildcat Mail Gmail account, and start an email or Chat session with us at email@example.com.
- We will answer you & help you to get going.
- Share your paper with us in Google Docs so that you and the tutor can see the paper together. You can see and hear each other through Google Meet video; we'll show you how.
Appointment Sessions Are Face to Face or Online in Real-Time
Schedule an appointment to meet with a writing tutor to go over your paper or project.
Select Ogden Writing Center from the drop-down list.
At the time of your appointment, the tutor will use Chat to help you share your paper and to start the video call.
Click Accept in the pop-up window on your email screen to get started.
- For post-session review after your tutoring session, you can request that the tutor look at your next draft and send you further feedback. On this page, you submit your revised draft, describing what your remaining concerns and questions are. This type of response is for students who have already had a tutoring session, online or face-to-face, and would like a follow-up look at a draft. Name the tutor you worked with or the day on which you had your tutoring session, and the tutor will give a follow-up response to your paper or project.

Get the Most out of a Writing Center Tutoring Session
- Plan your time, coming in early in the writing process and leaving yourself time to revise. You may also want one or more follow-up sessions, and planning well allows you time to revise well and edit well.
- Bring a description of the assignment, if available, and be familiar with your professor’s expectations.
- Unless you are seeking a brainstorming session, bring a copy of your most recent draft of your paper or digital project. Also, our printers are available to print works to be tutored, and you can open your Adobe projects on our computers.
- Let the tutor know what you are most concerned about, and be sure to ask questions. This relationship is meant to support your ability to compose and revise with confidence and skill.
- If you make an appointment, be certain to arrive 5-10 minutes early in order to get the nearest available tutor to your time slot. Arriving even one minute late means losing the appointment slot, but you can still get in line for a drop-in session.
