UT Tyler Writing Center

Making Appointments

Writing Center appointments start on the hour and last no more than 50 minutes. You are allowed to make up to two appointments per week, but no more. If you are more than 15 minutes late to your appointment, the time will open up for drop in tutorials.

We recommend you schedule an appointment ahead of time because we do get busy.

Visit WCOnline to register. You will need this account to set up an appointment. 

The best way to contact us is at writingcenter@uttyler.edu. We try to respond within 24 hours during the week. 

You can still call us at 903.565.5995. BUT since we are online-only right now, we cannot answer there all the time. Please leave a detailed message with your name and number (preferably local) so we can return your call.

Online Appointment Options

LIVE: You will work with a tutor in real time via GoogleDocs. You email the tutor your paper by the appointment time, we set up the GoogleDoc and share it with you. Both of you chat and work on the paper during the appointment slot. (This tutoring style does NOT work well if you only have a phone or tablet). 

EMAIL: You email your assignment and your writing to us by your appointment time along with 1-2 specific questions or areas of concern. We read and comment on your paper and send it back to you within the appointment slot. You can reply with questions and clarifications.

A note: We can set up a Zoom at the time of your appointment by request. When you email the documents to us, please include IN BOLD so we know to set up the Zoom for you or let you know if Zoom is not currently available.
