Online Writing Lab


You can get written feedback from a HACC tutor by submitting your essay through the writing center email. You can even follow up with your tutor in a live video session to discuss their feedback. 

Tutors host these online tutoring sessions through Zoom; check out these tips to prepare for your online tutoring session. 

Submission Timing

One of the most important parts of receiving online tutor feedback is timing.  
Remember, writing tutors require time to review an essay and write feedback. Do not wait too long to submit your essay; if you do, you may not receive feedback before the deadline or you may not have time to make the changes the tutor suggests.  
Refer to the table below to assure you receive your feedback in time: 

Submit Essay Receive Feedback 
Between 9 am on Monday & 9 pm on Thursday Within 48 Hours
Friday The following Tuesday
Over the weekend  By 12 pm the following Wednesday                

As you prepare your essay for submission, please adhere to the following guidelines.

  • All documents must be submitted in .doc or .docx format.
  • Attach assignment sheet (when available). 
  • This is not a proofreading or editing service; while your tutor may address issues of grammar, the tutor’s primary focus will be on organization, clarity, and content.
