COVID-19 UPDATES

  • WSIP will continue to provide services remotely. 
  • Tutors will continue to meet REMOTELY with students and clients for individual and small group tutoring, job market prep, and editing. Your tutor will contact you with instructions for remote meetings, usually via Zoom, Skype, or Whereby, in combination with Google Docs. You can learn more about using Google Docs from our YouTube video.
  • GWI 2020 and YWI 2020 will be held entirely online. 
  • Our regular academic year services (free tutoring and workshops) will resume August 24. At this time, we anticipate that we will begin the semester with on-line only services, but please check back for updates. 

We will respond to emails and phone calls daily. We prefer emails rather than phone messages since they are faster and easier to reply to. Email writingskills@email.arizona.edu or email your tutor directly. 

WSIP is here to help you succeed in this challenging time, so stay positive!

** ALL TUTORING WILL BE HELD ONLINE BEGINNING MARCH 16, 2020. **
