Graduate Writing Consultation

How the Service Works:

Graduate students should log into Writing Center Online to book an appointment. In person, email, and live chat appointments are available. When booking an appointment, select GRADUATE TUTORING: Summer 2018. 

  • For In Person Appts.: you will be contacted by your consultant after the appt., is scheduled to let you know the location.
  • For E-mail Appointments: schedule your appt. and upload your paper. You will be notified when it has been reviewed, usually within 48 hrs.
  • For Online Appointments: check-in at your appt. 5 min. before the scheduled time and join the chat session with your tutor.

The first time that a student uses WCO, he/she will need to register; after the first log in, the student's information will be accessible by WCO. If faculty members have students who would like to take advantage of the Writing Center's services, they can visit

Students who prefer a face-to-face appointment can call 419.289.5957 or email

About Graduate Writing Consultation:

What we can do:

  • Provide constructive feedback on your ideas, outlines and drafts
  • Provide help with improving organization and structure
  • Provide feedback to improve word flow, clarity, readability
  • Provide feeback to APA or other formal style guidelines, including in-text citation and documentation
  • Provide feeback on grammar and punctuation errors
  • Respond to your initial request withitn 24-48 hours

We cannot do:

  • GWCs cannot "fix" or correct errors--they can identify them and point you to recources for help
  • GWCs cannot be content experts in your discipline. GWCs are masters-qualified experts in writing. They can help with your writing but cannot tell you whether you have gotten your content "right." Consult your professor for help with that.
  • GWCs cannot write your work for you. They are here for your guidance and support only.
  • GWCs do work outside the 9-5 workday, but are not on-call 24/7. Do not wait until the last minute to request help.
