At Home Help


How the Online Writing Center works

After a student sends his/her paper to capitalwritingcenter@gmail.com, the coordinator will forward it to a specific online writing center editor. The student and the editor who are paired up will have to communicate with each other and set an appointment to meet on Google Docs to "chat" about the paper. The chatting online will take the place of the talking that will normally happen in the "at school" Writing Center.


The Online Writing Center will be working in a first-come-first-serve fashion. In other words, the earlier you send your essay, the higher on the "need help" list you will be! We will make sure to provide help to everyone who send their work at a reasonable time.

Notice: The editor does not simply revise the paper and give it back to the student. They should be talking to each other as if they were in the "not online" Writing Center at school. ​​

What the Student needs to Provide to the Editor

In their e-mail, the student should...

1) Attach or share their paper and mention what class/subject it is for (ex. Biology lab, AP Language essay, etc) through Google Docs

2) Give the due date of the paper (or how quickly they need the paper to be looked at)

3) What times they can meet online


Please give the paper 1-2 days in advance, so the editor and the student can have time discuss when they want to meet.


What Editors will provide to Students and the Center

Editors will do their best to be on time and to give their best advice to help all students in any writing assignment. Since the number of people at our center has grown, the number of people available to help actively online will be higher.


How to get Proof for your Visit


Editors will e-mail the student's teacher about their appointment online for proof of visit.


Please provide the name of the teacher the assignment was assigned by to ensure that you get proof for your visit.
