If you are a Douglas College student, our online tutoring service uses email to provide you with feedback about your writing. We provide online writing help in three ways:
They are university and college students experienced with what college instructors expect from written assignments. We train our tutors to guide you with advice about how to revise your papers to better meet instructor expectations. However, tutors are neither editors nor instructors. They do not fix your writing for you. Instead, they suggest what you can do to improve your own paper. They leave it up to you what changes to make. Tutors also do not provide their opinions about what grade a paper might get. Only course instructors have this role.
We have two goals in our writing tutoring: first, tutors take on the role of informed peer readers to let student writers know how their papers come across to other students; second, tutors use students' papers and questions as opportunities to suggest improvements in writing process and writing practice.
The role tutors do not take on is copy editor; we will not fix students' papers for them.
