Individual writing tutorial appointments (up to 50-minute sessions) are available to any MU undergraduate for any writing project, including all course-related assignments, personal statements, cover letters, scholarship essays, creative writing pieces, or pretty much anything else you can think of that has sentences.
All appointments are free and completely confidential.
During your appointment, your tutor will work with you at whatever stage of the project you’re in, from the assignment sheet stage to final revisions.
You can make appointments online via the Online Writery, from your internet-connected device of choice. If you have questions, the easiest way to reach us is via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Spring 2021 Writing Tutoring Availability
While classes are in session, we offer synchronous online tutorial sessions via Zoom. You should be able to see the available appointments by selecting “Schedule an Appointment” from the MyWritery tab (click that Make An Appointment button above to go the Online Writery). You’ll receive your particular Zoom meeting information in the scheduling email. If you make your appointment at least a day in advance, you’ll also receive a reminder email the morning of your appointment.
Tutors will meet with you via Zoom and will expect you to share your screen (ideally both the assignment sheet and your project) so that you can read it together.
As always, we continue to respond (asynchronously) to your submissions via the Online Writery as well!
Writing Intensive (WI) Tutorials
If you’re enrolled in a WI course, you also have access to one of our WI tutors. These are graduate students from various disciplines across campus, usually familiar with the assignments and expectations of your course. When making an appointment for any WI courses, you’ll be routed to one of these tutors instead.
