Online Tutoring

The Writing Center at MSU provides walk-in tutoring and consultation for all MSU students and faculty; if you are a distance education student who is unable to come to campus, we invite you to try out our email submission system!

In an email addressed to, with “Online Submission: [last name]” in the subject line, please provide the following information:
  • Your full name and M#
  • Course and Instructor name
  • A copy or description of the assignment
  • 2-3 specific questions you have for the tutor. Use questions provided on our link “How to Focus Your Session.”
Attach your draft as a Word document, and hit send!

A tutor will use both Track Changes and general email comments to provide feedback. If you submit your essay Sunday through Thursday, you can expect to receive a response within 48 hours; tutors will read essays submitted on Friday or Saturday (when the Writing Center is closed) when they return to work on Sunday and Monday.
