Writing Tutoring

Writing tutors are Rockhurst students trained to help with written assignments, from short reflections to lengthy research papers. Tutors do not simply edit papers, but instead work with you to identify ways to enhance and clarify your writing while meeting the requirements of your assignment. Writing tutors help you with any written assignment for any class. We can even help with graduate school application essays!

To make an appointment with a writing tutor, please visit WC Online and select “Writing” from the drop-down menu to see the availability of our writing tutors. 

Online Tutoring 

During the Fall 2020 Semester, all tutoring sessions will be conducted virtually.  To schedule an online tutoring session, please consult WC Online Guide for Students. Online tutoring sessions will be conducted through our scheduling software, WCOnline. This program is how you normally schedule tutoring sessions and does not require you to download any special software in advance to your session.  Here is some general information about online tutoring: 

  • To start an online session (assuming you have scheduled a session), you will log into WCOnline and navigate to that appointment. Once you have opened that appointment, you will follow the on screen directions to begin your virtual session.  
  • You should have a webcam and a microphone.  Most computers that have webcams also have built-in microphones. 
  • You do not need to download any special software or programs before your appointment.
  • We recommend that you use headphones during your appointment because it will make it easier to communicate with your tutor.
  • You should have a reliable internet connection.  Since the appointment will be conducted online, it is important to have a strong internet connection.

If you have any questions about online tutoring, feel free to call the Learning Center at 816-501-4052 or email us at learningcenter@rockhurst.edu.
