The QWC has four types of tutors:
- graduate tutors, who help with any university writing assignment;
- graduate science tutors, our subject area tutors who assist with science writing;
- undergraduate peer tutors, who help with Composition I & II papers exclusively;
- undergraduate tutors, who help with any undergraduate assignment (just no graduate papers).
All QWC tutors work by appointment. We offer face-to-face and online tutoring. Each service is explained in more detail below.
To get started, click “make an appointment” above. Complete the registration form and schedule your appointment. For more detailed tutoring and appointment information, select the “What We Do” and “Appointment Tips” tabs above or call us at 479.575.6747.
When scheduling an appointment, the first selection in the form is face-to-face or online tutoring. Most clients select face-to-face and come to work with a tutor at Kimpel Hall or Mullins Library for 30 or 60 minutes. Bring your paper and a copy of your professor’s assignment sheet. Come with a plan–the tutor will ask you about your major areas of concern and will expect you to be an active participant in the conversation about improving the paper and your writing.
Online Email Tutoring
If you would like an online email tutorial, have your paper ready in Word format. Make a 60-minute appointment, select the online email option, submit your assignment instructions, and upload your paper. At the appointment time, the tutor will read your paper, insert comments and feedback in the margins, and then email the paper to your UARK account. You do not have to meet the tutor online.
