via the UIC Writing Center:
The Writing Center is offering online tutoring throughout the Spring semester. You can use the Writing Center to work on writing for any course, not just English. Also, tutors are ready to help with job applications, personal statements, and resumes.
Here is a short video introducing them to peer tutoring.
We offer two types of appointments, synchronous and asynchronous. For the 50-minute synchronous appointment, you will meet live with the tutor through chat or audio and together make decisions about how to improve your writing. If you haven't started your assignment, that is OK. A tutor will help you brainstorm or make an outline. We have plenty of experience helping with writer's block.
For asynchronous sessions, you can upload up to 3 pages of writing (and a description of your assignment) and the tutor will respond by email within 48 hours, but usually much sooner. The tutor will describe your strengths and offer three areas where you can improve. You can then apply these suggestions to other parts of the paper.
We encourage you to try both types of appointments. You are welcome to make up to three appointments per week! We are open
Tutors understand that some of you will be using the Writing Center or online tutoring for the first time. They are ready to guide you through your first session.
The Writing Center is a great way to get more out of UIC. Here is what other students say:
"Absolutely wonderful. So welcoming and friendly. Thanks for helping me develop my first outline!"
"The tutor was very helpful. We read through my paper and she clearly explained what I have to do to improve. This was my first time and it was great! I will use it again!"
"The tutor was patient and nice. He took notes for me and helped me think about what to do next. I could tell he is passionate about his work."
"I love using the writing center. The tutor gave me advice and tips on how to edit my paper. I recommend the writing center to everyone!"
Looking forward to seeing you at the Writing Center!
