Virtual Consultations Information and Request Form
This online service is available for only those students who are not enrolled in classes on the Blacksburg campus. Priority will be given to students in the Virginia Tech National Capital Region Campus (VT/NCR).
Our online writing sessions function like our face-to-face writing consultations in the VT campus Writing Center, except the online sessions are held virtually via Google Hangouts and Google Docs using your VT email account. You will work with a writing coach to talk about your writing via Google Hangouts and read through the document together in Google Docs. By working together, we can help you develop strategies to identify and articulate areas of your writing where you feel you need the most help.

What do I need to do?

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE AN ACCOUNT WITH WC ONLINE, you must go to WC Online and create an account to be scheduled:
Request an appointment at least 3 days before you wish to meet with a coach. We will notify you both over email before your appointment with further details.
Familiarize yourself with Google Hangouts prior to your session. All virtual tutoring sessions occur in Google Hangouts using your VT email account.
Share your document via Google Docs.

Policies and Guidelines
We can work with each student one hour per week.
We are not a proofreading or editing service. We will, however, work collaboratively with you to provide strategies for developing your ideas and your revisions.
Fill out the form carefully and completely. We will not be able to schedule an appointment without a completed form.

Due to staffing limitations, we reserve the option to reduce or restrict the availability of this service at any time.

Please note: We only schedule virtual consultations during our regular hours, so please check schedule to see what hours are available. The more hours you are able to suggest, the more likely we are to be able to schedule an appointment for you.
