Face-to-Face Consultations give you the opportunity to talk about and improve your writing in a helpful and friendly environment. You can make an appointment before you write or after you have a draft. Appointments before you write are ideal to talk out the assignment with a consultant. This could allow you to better understand the assignment, brainstorm ideas, create an outline, or develop a research plan. Appointments with a draft are ideal for those who want feedback on their work and help with idea development, organization, citations, grammar, or punctuation. Each consultation is crafted specifically to the needs and wants of the individual writer. It’s all about YOU!

Can’t come in for a face-to-face appointment, but still want some help? Then Online Consultations are for you! Online consultations can be requested anytime through our online form, and will usually be returned to you within 3-4 business days. Your work will be returned to you from firstname.lastname@example.org, with two attachments: your paper with a consultant’s comments and a consultation summary. Online consultations allow you to get the help you need regardless of your busy schedule!
