Chat With a Tutor

When possible, the Writing Center will make a tutor available for online chats. If a tutor is available to chat, you will see a "green light" in the dialogue bubble within the chat widget below. You can also find us in your own IM application – our screen name is UIowaWriteNow. Feel free to ask any question you might have at any stage of your writing process! You can even ask for guidance before you begin an assignment. We are able to answer many questions through chatting, but we ask that you use our online tutoring program for feedback about a whole draft.

Chat tutoring is offered only when staff are available to monitor the chat room. If you need help but there is not a tutor available to chat, please use the links above to learn about our regular tutoring programs.
