Hello, Horned Frogs!
Our consultants are available 8-5, Mondays through Fridays, eager to help students, staff, and faculty. You now have three options for getting help with your writing, as we expand our teleconferencing capacity to enable us to provide continuity of instructional services, while following the CDC’s recommended practices for higher education for low-risk contact during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as guidance from TCU’s Connected Campus Council:
- To access help with your writing via e-mail, please submit your papers through the “online help” page on this website. We will respond to submissions in the order in which we receive them. If possible, we will return manuscripts with our suggestions for revision within two working days. Please submit all papers as Word documents. This is a strong option for feedback on completed papers.
- To arrange a personal teleconference via Zoom to brainstorm ideas, discuss writing issues, or go over a paper, please go to our online scheduler and register for an appointment at your chosen time. Each consultant’s stable Zoom address will appear under their name. At the time of your appointment, click on the link and you’ll enter the consultant’s waiting room. Zoom tutorials offer the most relaxed and safest person-to-person interaction for writing consultations at this time. If you have any problems with a Zoom appointment at the Center, please call 817-257-7221.
- If either of the above options are not feasible for you, we offer a limited number of face-to-face tutorials by appointment only. Please realize, though, that both consultant and student writer must wear TCU-mandated face coverings and/or other protective equipment and maintain at least a six-foot distance from each other. To inquire about an in-person tutorial, please call 817-257-7221.
