How do I make an email appointment?

You can set up an email appointment in the online scheduler, the same way that you would if you were making a face-to-face appointment. Simply select "Online" and "e-mail" and then either attach your paper in the scheduler or email it to

You could also email a description of your assignment, your questions, and your draft to We respond within 24 hours Monday through Friday.


How do I make an IM appointment?

Step-by-step instructions for an IM session:

  1. IM appointments are scheduled through WCOnline in the same way face-to-face appointments are scheduled, only ‘IM’ should be selected from the drop down menu in the appointment window rather than ‘face-to-face’. Also, the answer to the question ‘Meet Online?’ in the appointment window should be ‘Yes—Meet Online’.
  2. After the appointment has been saved, attach the file containing the paper to the session.
  3. Your appointment will appear red on the schedule after exiting the appointment window.
  4. At the time you scheduled your appointment for, log back in to WCOnline and select your red appointment slot. Follow the instructions under the drop-down menu that should say ‘Yes—Meet Online’.
  5. The chat session should open in a separate window. Your tutor will direct you from there.


What kind of appointment should I make?

We have the following options for you to choose from:

  • Face-to-face tutoring is where you come into the Center and work one-on-one with a tutor.
  • For e-mail sessions, send your paper to; we will assign a tutor to e-mail you feedback within 24-48 business hours.
  • For IM sessions you schedule a time to meet a tutor online to have a session concerning your project without leaving the comfort of your own home!
  • We can also video record your speeches or group presentations in our speech room and either e-mail the recording to you or go over it with you.
