Emory Writing Center Offers Distance Tutoring

Emory Writing Center will continue its distance tutoring pilot program during summer 2017. Distance tutoring appointments are reserved for students who are living or working outside of the Atlanta metropolitan area and local students who are registered with Access, Disability Services, and Resources (ADSR). For more information about the Writing Center’s distance tutoring program, visit our policies webpage or contact us at writingcenter@emory.edu.


EWC Offers More Appointments for Final 14

To meet the extra demand for tutoring appointments during the final 14 days of the semester, more tutors will be on duty during select hours in the Emory Writing Center.  Please check WCOnline for extra tutor availability and to make an appointment, as we can only see walk-in clients on a limited basis.

As always, please bring your assignment instructions and a hard copy of your paper (or your laptop if you are working on a digital project). Also, please be reminded that we cannot tutor take home exams without the written consent of your instructor. Visit our website for our full tutor appointment guidelines and policies.
