Will you be offering Face-to-Face tutoring appointments this Fall?

If you require an in-person appointment please contact us by phone (501-450-5123), or by email ( We will be returning to in-person appointments for Fall 2021, but we encourage students to choose the appointment type they are most comfortable with.

I want someone to proofread my project. Can I just drop it off?

At the Center for Writing and Communication (CWC), we want to help you develop your writing and communication skills. We believe that the best way to do this is to have a conversation about your work, focusing initially on big picture issues, like focus and organization. To help students most effectively, we require that students work with us in appointments and do not allow drop off service.  Note that the CWC will only work with the original author of an assignment or document.

How do I make an appointment?

You can make an appointment in one of several ways:

  • Call (501) 450-5123;

How do I cancel my appointment?

If you need to cancel your appointment, simply revisit our online scheduler at, click on the appointment you would like to cancel, and click the red “CANCEL THIS APPOINTMENT” button at the bottom of the pop-up window.

Alternatively, you can call the CWC at (501) 450-5123 or email to cancel your appointment.

What can I expect at my appointment?

Every session goes a bit differently, but we recommend you come prepared with your assignment sheet, current draft, sources, and specific questions about what you want to work on. Also, let us know if you would like feedback on presentation delivery. The consultant will start by asking you about these things.

How long are appointments?

All appointments are 30 minutes in length. However if you have a special circumstance that would require more tutoring time, such as for a needed accommodation or GRE preparation, please call or email us for an exception. Please note that if you schedule an hour long appointment without first receiving approval, that appointment will be changed to 30 minutes.

How are tutors trained?

The CWC tutors go through a rigorous application and training process.  To be considered for the position, they must maintain a GPA of 3.5 or higher.  They then submit their own work for review and complete an application which requires them to assess sample student writing and a presentation.  After that, they complete a semester long practicum training course during which they train on the job in the CWC.
