Online Consultations

Online consultations will be available through 4:00 p.m. Thursday, July 23rd. Submissions received after this time will not receive a response until August 15th.

The Center’s mission is to provide writing instruction (coaching); consultants do not proofread or edit papers. We primarily look at global issues (development, organization, logic). We will direct your attention to style and grammar problems by marking areas of concern. On longer papers, we will mark only the first two pages for style and grammar convention errors. Please limit your submission to 5 pages. If your paper is longer, please select and submit the areas that concern you the most, and if possible, include your working thesis statement.


Turn around time: the current turn response time is 24 hours not including, Fridays, weekends and holidays.

If you do not get a response within 24 hours, please call us at (925) 473-7590.
