Welcome to the COM Writing Center!

We're open for LIMITED HOURS during Summer Session II.

Please select the correct schedule for the appointment type you want:

A synchronous appointment is a tutoring session in real time. You and a tutor will discuss your writing at your scheduled appointment, where you'll be able to ask questions and receive feedback directly. 

An asynchronous appointment is not a live online tutoring session. You’ll upload your paper in advance and receive written feedback from a tutor sometime on the day of your appointment "slot." 

Please note: We don't proofread or edit papers, but we do point out and address repeated errors or style issues. Feel free to make an appointment with any of our tutors, even if they're in a different program than you. They're all available to help you.

You can currently make appointments through July 30th.

If you have any questions, please email us at

Thank you for your patience and flexibility at this time. Stay safe and be well!
