Please Keep In Mind


  • Written feedback will be available within an hour of your scheduled appointment time

  • Plan to have more than one appointment for longer papers; we can usually get through 6-9 pages per appointment
  • Be sure to watch the recorded video feedback for a more in-depth explanation of our feedback because our written comments usually are notes for us to reference in the video.

  • Before your appointment is scheduled to begin, log back in and attach your draft and assignment directions by clicking on the yellow folder icon below your name.
