Technical Writing

The Shackouls Technical Communication Program is providing writing tutors for the 2019 spring semester to assist your students with all writing-related issues, from routine writing assignments for your classes to senior-design reports, theses, dissertations, and job-application materials. Students can meet with our tutors in McCain 202 during the following office hours (no appointment needed) effectively immediately:

Juliana Jones
Mondays: 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.; 3:30-4:00 p.m.
Tuesdays & Thursdays: 2:00-5:00 p.m.
Wednesdays: 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.; 3:30-5:00 p.m.
Fridays: 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.

Morgan Willingham
Mondays & Wednesdays: 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Tuesdays & Thursdays: 3:00-5:00 p.m.

Writing Tutor email address: bcoewritingtutors@gmail.com

The BCoE Writing tutors are happy to review any document with which engineering students might need assistance. Documents submitted are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. Students can send them email at bcoewritingtutors@gmail.com with the document attached, and they will comment electronically and send it back. They can also bring a hard copy to McCain 202D during any of their office hours above, which tutors will then mark up by hand and email the student when the document is ready to be picked up. Students need no appointment to see the writing tutors, though they may certainly make an appointment if they wish.

There is a hard 20-page limit on submissions for review. If the document exceeds 20 pages (like a thesis or dissertation), we ask that it be broken up into 20-page increments. They will read and review the first 20 pages and then send those back, and then students may send on the next 20 pages, and so on, until the document is finished.

The tutors will only read submissions during their office hours, so students should keep this in mind when contacting them. For example, if something is due at 5:00 p.m. on the day a student submits it to the tutors at 3:30 p.m., they may be busy with other students’ work, or there may not be any tutors holding office hours at that time. If there is any sort of quickly approaching due date or other time crunch, students need to let the tutors know this so they can adjust accordingly (if feasible). Generally, students should allow at least one day for each document to be reviewed and returned (perhaps more for documents that are split up in 20-page increments).
