FAQ

If you provide an assignment question or writing draft, the tutor will first respond to your priorities. If there is time left, they will provide some other suggestions for strengthening your work.

If you don't provide a draft or assignment, the tutor can still answer your writing questions. For example, you might want to know about formatting in MLA, or you might need a clear explanation and examples of how to write a strong thesis statement. Maybe you have a quick grammar question. We are here to help you!

Note: Tutors cannot edit or proofread your work (i.e., correct the grammar and punctuation).
