eTutoring and the Online Writing Lab
eTutoring is a free service available to all graduate students at the U. You can submit your writing to the Writing Lab online and receive feedback from a graduate tutor in approximately 48 hours. You can submit your writing at any stage of the writing process. Submissions may include drafts of your acadmic work (papers, thesis/dissertation chapters, conference proposals) or personal writing (creative pieces, application materials), and you can ask tutors specific questions about your project.
If you need help understanding the following subjects at an undergraduate level, tutors can assist you in a live setting using your computer's video chat and screensharing features:
- Anatomy & Physiology
- Computer Science (Java & C++ only)
- Intro to Psychology
- Math (Developmental through Trigonometry)
- Microsoft Office
- Web Development (HTML, CSS, and WordPress)
How to Tag your Paper as a Grad Student Submission
Once you are logged in to eTutoring, click on the "Writing Lab" tab (on the right-hand side of your screen). Then, select “Submit a New Writing Assignment.” Fill out the submission form as thoroughly and accurately as possible, as that information will guide your tutor's feedback.
Pay particular attention to the bottom of the form; click on “Graduate Student Submission.”
This will ensure that a graduate-level writing tutor responds to your paper.
If you have difficulty accessing eTutoring, please contact Anne McMurtrey.
