General Guidelines for Submitting a Writing Submission
You may submit a variety of writing assignments through eTutoring. Our tutors help students not only with essays but with assignments such as summaries, book reports interviews, lab reports, product reviews, memos, and resumes.eTutors will help you to become a better writer. They will offer you recommendations on improving what you have written. They will not edit or proofread your work. Typically you will receive a response within 24-48 hours through eTutoring.org, not through your personal email address.
What can you do to get the most out of a submission in writing?
Provide the tutor with as much information as possible about the assignment. If you can, copy and paste the teacher’s instructions. The more information you provide, the more assistance the tutor can offer.
Reread your writing before you submit. Look for unintentional errors. Help the tutor focus on real needs and not careless errors.
Make certain you upload your writing submission. Do not copy and paste it onto the submission form.
General Guidelines for Submitting an eQuestion
Please state your question clearly and fully.It is easier for us to help you when we have enough information to understand your question. Do not simply copy and paste a sentence or paragraph from your writing without indicating the type of assistance you need.
