You can make an appointment 3 ways:

  • In-person. You would meet with the tutor in 105 Grant Hall.
  • Online meeting. You would meet with the tutor in real time over the internet.
  • Or by Email. You would upload 3 pages of writing and the tutor would respond by email rather than meeting with you in real time.

To make an appointment, first register at uic.mywconline.com. When you log in, click on an available white square. If you don’t see a time free, please email wconlinehelp@gmail.com. During daytime hours, you can call the Writing Center at 312-413-2206.

For online meetings, go back to uic.mywconline.com, click your appointment, and then “JOIN ONLINE SESSION.”

In successful sessions, both you and the tutor participate.

For EMAIL tutoring, when you make the appointment, you will need to attach some writing for the tutor to look at. You may attach up to 3 double-spaced pages per appointment. Feedback on your writing will be sent to you by 8pm on the day your appointment is scheduled.

Testimonial feedback from a Writing Center user: Heading link

“This was an amazing experience as someone who came here for the first time. My tutor was very down-to-earth and gave me much better feedback than my professor and classmates. I feel more confident on finishing up my paper after our session here than weeks of class. 10/10 will come back if I have another paper.”
