3. Asynchronous Brockport Writing Tutoring

Asynchronous tutoring is reserved for distance learners and students who are not available for Brockport or STAR-NY synchronous tutoring.   Asynchronous writing tutoring does not take place in real time. Instead, you submit notes, an outline, or a draft along with your questions to ASC Writing Tutoring, and a tutor responds through email. The tutor will respond to your questions, make margin comments, and send your materials back to you within 5 business days. Tutors typically review 3-6 pages of text in a single asynchronous session, depending upon the specific types of needs you have.  You may need to request multiple asynchronous sessions for longer pieces.  You may also request an asynchronous follow-up session after you have had a chance to revise in response to the tutor’s comments. Click here to request an Asynchronous Writing Tutoring Session. 

Please remember that writing tutoring is an instructional process, not an editing service.
