Meet with professional and peer tutors for technical guidance, constructive feedback and reviews of your problem-solving reasoning.

Writing Lab

Dominican undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to seek tutoring support whether you are at the beginnig and seeking to brainstorm and develop ideas, clarify a thesis or plan your tentative outline, or at the end and working on a final draft.

The Writing Lab provides tutoring by appointment. We encourage you to request an appointment via WCOnline. If you need additional assistance, please call (708) 524-6682 or visit the Academic Enrichment Center, room 010 in LL Parmer Hall.

How Online Writing Tutoring Works:

Students must first make an appointment with Bob Greenwald during his Online Tutoring hours using WCOnline and then submit their assignment one hour before the appointment as an attachment to Appointments for assignments 1-4 pages in length should be scheduled for a 30-minute appointment and assignments for 5-8 pages in length should schedule a 60-minute appointment. Please submit your assignment or question(s) to the tutor at least one hour before your scheduled time to ensure that he receives the document before your scheduled appointment. To be clear: this is NOT an online chat forum. The time slot you have reserved will be time for the tutor to read, comment on your work and send the draft back to you with suggestions. At that point, you may send any follow-up questions you want to ask.
