What other help can I get outside of online lessons?

You can contact me and post your written work in your personal Google Classroom.  I will check this every day to see if you have questions or if you have work you want me to review.   I will post any links or resources I think will be helpful to you in your classroom, so you can access them anytime.

You can also send emails to me at sdavis@academicwritingsuccess.com

Another way you can get my help is to see me during my online office hours.

How much does online academic writing tutoring cost?

My tutoring fee is $60 per hour.  I offer 1-hour sessions for $60.00 and 45-minute sessions for $45.00   If you and one or more people want to have group tutoring sessions, the fee is $30.00 per person.  Group tutoring is an excellent option for people who are working on similar projects or individuals that are in a class together.  

What is Google Classroom? Do I need to have a Google Account?

Google Classroom is a place where students and teachers can communicate with each other, send and review assignments, and collaborate on writing and projects.  You can post any of your writing or ask questions in Google Classroom.  You can also find readings, resources and web links posted there.

You don’t need to have a Google account. You will only need to go to https://classroom.google.com, enter as a student, and then type in the class code I will send you.

What if I need to cancel an online tutoring session?

If you need to miss a tutoring session, you will need to cancel 24 hours before our scheduled time.  Otherwise, you will be charged for that tutoring session.  I do allow for you to have an exception to this rule if there is an important emergency.

Why do you tutor academic writing online?

I really believe the best way to help you become a better writer is by working individually with you.  Tutoring online is a great way for me to make my lessons geared specifically to you. I focus on what you need and want to learn about academic writing.  Also, there are many online writing and research resources we can use in tutoring sessions.  Plus, I can tutor students from anywhere in the world!
