Online Writing Help

Have a paper due, but can’t make it into the SSC for help? Have no fear! You may email your paper to the SSC and one of our writing tutors will look it over and provide feedback. The SSC is in the process of implementing a platform in order to provide real time tutorials in writing. Until this begins, once you email your paper to us, a tutor will contact you via email or phone.

Please note that the SSC does not edit papers. Rather, tutors will help students figure out deficiencies and assist students in writing a better paper.
