Student Resources for Online Courses

If you’re taking online classes, the ASC can provide you with in-depth writing assistance. Our writing tutors deliver valuable suggestions regarding essays, research papers, resumes, and a wide variety of other documents. The ultimate goal is not to fix papers, but to empower you with the skills necessary for overall improvement of writing skills. Our tutors are permitted to offer generalized feedback but will not point out all grammatical errors or make actual corrections for you. The ASC also offers assistance through Tutor.com, an online tutoring and writing review service available 24/7. Registered students can login using their PantherID email and password.
