During one 5-week course, an Ashford student may use one (1) tutoring session per week. A tutoring session is defined as a Live Chat session or one email submission.
Sessions are limited for several reasons:
- The AWC believes in offering assistance but also fostering independence. After meeting with a writing consultant,, you are encouraged to apply what you learn to your writing. If you would like additional help, please use another session the next week.
- Due to the high volume of Ashford students, the AWC needs to ensure tutoring resources are available for everyone.
The AWC employs a team of professional writing consultants who complete a specially designed training program. Prior tutoring experience is required for writing consultants.Many of them have been instructors or Teaching Assistants at Ashford and are familiar with the students as well as the curriculum.
*The Ashford Writing Center is closed on all observed holidays. Please plan accordingly for this delay when submitting papers for review or attempting to contact the AWC on holidays.
