The Writing Center in Drinko Library offers online tutoring for students who cannot make it to the library during the day. Online tutoring is a service that allows students to e-mail essays, resumes, theses, or any kind of written document to a tutor to have revised. The tutor reads through the draft, identifies the main problems and writes a response at the bottom of the document. “The purpose of the Writing Center is to help students better their writing, not to ‘fix’ their papers for them,” Ferrell said. “So, the idea is, with the advice I give, a student can improve each paper they write, rather than simply turn in an edited paper.” Demand for online tutoring has grown in the last year.
