You may use this free service to work on your writing assignments, application essays, business letters, or other projects.

Face-to-Face Appointments v. Online Appointments
For Fall 2020, face-to-face appointments will be limited. See our website for more information.
We offer face-to-face and online, synchronous appointments. Consultants available online are marked on the schedule with "face-to-face or online" beneath their names. We recommend hour-long online appointments because communication takes longer than in face-to-face appointments. At your appointment time--or shortly before--log into our system and join your session. You will have the option of using audio/video during online sessions; make sure you have a working webcam, microphone, and high-speed internet connection if enabling audio/video. Online sessions take place within and utilize our online schedule system; you will not need Skype, IM, Google, or any other platform/software.
