Writing and learning consultants are generally available Monday to Friday, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
MacEwan University is a partner in eTutor Alberta, a consortium of post-secondary institutions in Alberta that have joined together to provide online asynchronous tutoring support to their students. At this time, MacEwan University students have ongoing access to online professional tutoring services in writing support, including quick questions about writing and citing.
As a MacEwan University learner, if you submit a paper for tutoring assistance, a tutor from any of the participating institutions may assist you. Tutors endeavour to respond within 48 hours, though response times may be longer during periods of high student usage.
eTutor Alberta runs from January to April, 2015.
