The OU Writing Center is a pedagogical service that supports the writing development of all members of the OU and Norman community. The primary goal of our consultations is to help writers learn something they can use in the future. Because of this, we do not serve as a proofreading or editing service, but instead strive to provide feedback that is thoughtful, intentional, and useful. We encourage you to use test out our various online consultation options to see what helps you learn best. We offer the following online consultations:

  • Online appointments which are synchronous over video and/or chat. Writers are NOT required to enable their video during online appointments if they prefer to use chat only. 
  • Etutoring appointments are asynchronous appointments. Writers will upload their documents ahead of time to receive feedback at the end of the scheduled appointment slot.

Want More Guidance Before Making an Appointment? Here are some videos to help you out.

Scheduling Appointments

The process to schedule an Online and eTutoring appointment varies slightly. Here's a video on how to schedule appointments and how to create an account with us. If you already have an account, jump to the 35 second mark.

Online & eTutoring Appointments

With Online appointments, you receive feedback through video and/or chat. With eTutoring appointments, you receive feedback in the form of in-text comments in the document you upload when you schedule an eTutoring appointment.
