 Chat Tips

Consultants will be online when they don't have students booked for online appointments, so they may be available outside of posted hours.

If the chat button isn't online at a posted time, it could be that the scheduled consultant has requested time off. Be sure to check the live schedule on Razortrack if the chat button isn't online at a time listed.


Preparing for Your Writing Consultation

  • The more time you spend revising and polishing your writing prior to the appointment, the more insight you will have into what questions to ask the consultant.
  • The more time you spend revising and polishing your writing prior to the appointment, the more insight you will have into what questions to ask the consultant.
  • Understand writing consultants will provide feedback and answer any questions you have, but they cannot edit your work. You are the ultimate owner of the paper.

About the Writing Studio

The Writing Studio provides one-on-one tutoring assistance to all students at any stage of the writing process.
