Online Writing Center tutors

How does the IUP Online Writing Center work?

The IUP Online Writing Center provides live, real-time interaction between you and your IUP Writing Center tutor. We use WebEx, a Web conferencing tool, to connect students with tutors.

What happens during an online tutoring session?

During the session, you will share your screen with the tutor and discuss your paper using your computer’s microphone. Your tutor will provide comments and suggestions, and you can revise your paper on the spot based on this feedback. The tutor can also provide Web resources to help you proofread your paper or format references and in-text citations.

How do I get started?

It’s easy to get started: just schedule an appointment on our calendar to meet with one of our tutors online. After the Writing Center sets up your WebEx session, you’ll receive an e-mail from “Writing Center via Cisco WebEx” with a link to begin your session at your scheduled time.

You may also consult these step-by-step instructions for scheduling an appointment and meeting your tutor.

Online appointments are conducted no sooner than 24 hours after the time that you schedule. The calendar automatically closes appointments that are too close to the time of booking. If you need help sooner, stop by the Writing Center in 218 Eicher Hall. No appointment is needed for walk-ins.

Please note: appointment times are reserved specifically for you and your tutor. Please don't be a no-show! If you cannot keep an appointment, let us know as soon as possible so that another student can have this time with a tutor. To cancel an appointment, e-mail us at w-center@iup.edu or call (724) 357-3029.
