Online Composition Hub
The Online Composition Hub is a free tutoring service for writing open to students enrolled in Continuing Education Evening and Online Credit courses. The online platform uses tools to help students access experienced, peer tutors who provide guidance and review student work.
Tutors specialize in helping students with traditional papers, but they can also assist with web design, video, blogging, Prezi, PowerPoint, as well as professional materials, such as resumes, cover letters, applications, and research projects.
Tutors and students share assignments via Google Docs. Students have the option of communicating with tutors synchronously—online at the same time as a tutor and talking via chat, Skype, or Google Hangout—or asynchronously—tutors provide feedback within 24 hours of the appointment time.
Professors’ Office Hours
All instructors hold office hours for students in their classes. We highly encourage you to meet with your instructors at the very beginning of each term–before the class becomes challenging—to make the most of this beneficial opportunity. Instructors for online courses are available to students via email, Zoom, or phone. Please see your syllabus for details.
