Here are our responses to your Frequently Asked Questions about the Learning Center Online (LCO):
How long will it take to receive feedback from a tutor if I submit my paper to the Learning Center Online?
Though we try to return your draft to you as soon as possible, we ask that you give us at least 48 hours to review your paper. We want to make sure that we have plenty of time to provide a thorough, helpful response. Of course, you'll also want to give yourself some time to read our comments and revise your draft. In other words, the sooner you can submit your paper--the better!
How will the Learning Center Online tutors know what kind of help I need?
When you submit a paper to the Learning Center Online, you'll be asked to complete a survey. The survey allows you to identify your course and instructor, describe your assignment, and select three different types of feedback that you'd like to receive. Our tutors review each survey before completing an online tutoring session, tailoring their feedback to the kinds of help that you've requested.
If you have any other questions or comments about any of these services, please e-mail Jennifer Chadourne at: email@example.com for assistance.
