We are encouraging all of our students to schedule online appointments although in-person appointments are available on a limited basis. We highly recommend that students make appointments in advance to ensure that they will be able to get help when they need it. Making appointments in advance is particularly important close to finals. Appointments are fifty-minute sessions. During the session, the tutor will ask the student about concerns and preferred study style to initiate a discussion and pinpoint potential trouble spots. While the tutor will offer suggestions on the student's writing or how to solve a particular problem, the student maintains ownership of his or her work at all times. Please note that the tutor will not write on the paper for a student.
To schedule an appointment, log in to indstate.mywconline.com, select an open time slot, and provided the necessary information. For these appointments, please bring a copy of your assignment, a writing utensil, and any relevant notes or textbooks. For in-person appointments, you will need to bring your laptop so that you and your tutor can both look at an electronic version of your paper.
Although we recommend making an appointment, drop-in tutoring is available for individuals and groups. Drop-in sessions are also fifty-minute sessions and will operate in the same way that scheduled appointments do. To check-in for a drop-in appointment, log in to indstate.mywconline.com and select an open time slot.
Sessions for groups can also be scheduled using indstate.mywconline.com. See instructions below.
We offer distance consultations for distance learning students as well. Distance students can sign up for appointments at indstate.mywconline.com by selecting an open time slot.
