AWC Online Tutoring Programs

The Academic Writing Center has two new online tutoring programs for students: AWC Online and AWC Tutor Feedback. These two programs are accessible for all UC students, so see which one works best for you. 

A student accesses the AWC online.

AWC Online allows students to video conference with AWC Tutors and work on their papers online and in real-time through Google Hangouts.

If you are interested in conferencing with a tutor online, email Joseph Cunningham at at least 48 hours prior to when you wish to speak with the tutor.

Joseph will then schedule the appointment and provide simple instructions regarding how to use the service.  

A student receives feedback online.

With AWC Tutor Feedback, you can submit essays of six pages or less to the AWC, and one of the AWC tutors will look at it, respond with helpful feedback, and email your draft back to you within 48 hours.

Typically, AWC Tutor Feedback submissions can be sent through an online form, which is currently down due to technical issues. 

But have no fear, friends! You can just email your essays of six double-spaced pages or less to and our tutors will respond within 24-48 hours. Please write "AWC Tutor Feedback" in the email's subject line.
