Online Writing Lab

Online Writing Lab Submission Guidelines

  1. To submit a paper for tutoring, attach your most recent draft to an email and address it to tutors@tamut.edu, and in the email body list your CWID, a description of the assignment, and any specific concerns you wish the tutor to address.   If your teacher requires documentation of your visit, request proof-of-visit in the email body, and list the teacher’s name and contact email (For notes on how we submit proof-of-visit, see below).
  2. You will receive a response back with an appointment time, marking when you will be receiving your paper back.  The paper will be returned no later or earlier than the time marked, generally 72 hours from when we process your paper, so please allow for at least three days to receive your paper back.  Note: papers received late on Friday or during the weekend will not be processed until Monday.
  3. On the time listed in the appointment, you will receive an email containing your commented paper, as well as instructions on how to submit proof-of-visit to your teacher should you require it.  

What we can help with:

  1. Argument, Thesis, Structure
  2. Formatting (MLA, APA, Chicago)
  3. Citation, Sources, and Research
  4. Grammar, Punctuation, and Mechanics *

*Note: We are not a proofing service. Though we may point out instances of reoccurring grammar and mechanical problems, as well as show a student how to find and fix further instances, we do not point out every occurrence nor proof your whole paper.


How do I Submit Proof to my Instructor?

If required for your class, a copy of your returned paper will be sent to the teacher to serve as proof of your visit.  We submit proof automatically for most English classes that require it, but if you need it for other classes, request proof-of-visit in your submission email.  Note: even though your teacher receives a copy, you may still have to submit a copy of your commented paper with your final draft to receive credit.
