Marquette’s Ott Memorial Writing Center is open for remote appointments. Through real-time appointments, the Ott can provide you with live interaction with a knowledgeable peer, individualized feedback and a way to structure your time on task.
More specifically, peer writing tutors in the Ott can help writers:
- Provide some structure to your writing day. The Ott welcomes writers who would like to discuss their prompt for 5 or 10 minutes, spend some time (40-50 minutes) actually writing, then discuss what they’ve drafted. For example, if you suddenly find yourself overwhelmed by the necessity of posting in lots of D2L discussion threads, this type of structure may be useful.
- Brainstorm ideas for drafts.
- Revise drafts.
- Cite your sources using various styles (including APA, MLA, Chicago and others).
Because the Ott already provided online tutoring using WCOnline (that’s the same website that handles all scheduling), the Ott continues to operate through WCOnline.
