How do you tutor writing skills online? Don’t you need to see the person?

With our electronic tutoring, we don’t see the student because the tutoring does not take place in real time. Here’s how it works:

You email us your paper. We then review your paper behind the scenes and write feedback on comment boxes within your paper. Click here to see how this looks.

Our feedback is practical, thorough and covers all form and content. Our e-tutoring works well for students with a visual learning style. As all feedback is written directly on papers, our service eliminates the need for notetaking, not to mention travel time.

We know how to ask questions to get you thinking. We also provide examples that you may use as models in your own writing. Student feedback has shown that our indirect tutoring methods are very effective (please see our testimonials).

Our customers appreciate the convenience of learning from home. Female students in particular have legitimate concerns about safety when meeting a tutor in the community.

Our methods also work well for students with disabilities:
Example 1: Students with disabilities of attention such as ADHD: These students tend to get distracted and have trouble remembering key points of lessons. Research has shown that people with ADHD disorders tend to be highly visual in their learning style. Our e-tutoring is tailored for visual learners. Needing to remember key points is not an issue as all feedback is in writing.

Example 2: Students with central auditory processing disorders: These students experience a delay in processing what they hear (despite testing normally on auditory screenings). Students with CAPD do not learn best through their hearing but must rely on their other senses–frequently their vision. Our e-tutoring provides a solution as all tutorials are visual, typed directly on students’ papers.

Example 3: Students with high-functioning autism (until 2013, this condition was called Asperger syndrome): These students tend to experience significant social anxiety that can interfere with learning. Many struggle with assertiveness and self-advocacy. Virtual tutoring provides an approachable solution for them to get help yet maintain their privacy. They might otherwise feel too intimidated to ask for help. These students also frequently experience sensory overload. They often have co-existing ADHD and trouble processing through their hearing. Receiving tutorials in writing provides a welcome relief for these students.[/wpspoiler]
