Chat with a Tutor

Write/Chat gives you the opportunity to talk to a Writing Studio tutor from home. Write/Chat sessions are meant to be a way for students who cannot get to our physical space to talk to a tutor.

Write/Chat sessions are by appointment. Also like the physical Studio, Write/Chat sessions are by appointment. You must set up an appointment in order to chat with a tutor.

If you haven’t visited the Writing Studio before, you need to create an account in order to set up an appointment and in order to join the chat session.. Click here to create an account.

After creating an account, you can make an appointment with “Online Video/WriteChat,” which is the online tutor. You must create an appointment with “Online Video/WriteChat” for any online tutorial sessions. Your appointment box will be red when you have made an appointment.

Five minutes before the scheduled appointment time, return to your appointment box. At the bottom, you will find a link called “Start or Join Online Consultation”. Click on this box to begin your online tutorial.

Now you can meet with your tutor online. The Online Consultation Module will give you instructions on how to upload documents, save your chat with the tutor, and export your revised documents. To Import a document onto the shared whiteboard, choose the “Import/Export” tab in the upper right-hand corner and select the document to upload. To Export an edited document after the tutorial, choose the “Import/Export” tab and choose the format of your exported document. Finally, if you want to save your chat, choose the “Saved Revisions” tab to export your revisions of the chat session.
