Face-to-Face and E-Tutoring

While face-to-face appointments are more effective, students may opt to make e-tutoring appointments, which are asynchronous. For e-tutoring appointments, you must send your essay as a word document, your essay prompt, and your appointment details (date, time, and tutor’s name) to writetoexcellence@mcneese.edu. Virtual tutors have up to 48 hours to respond with comments.
