Writing & Oral Communication Center (now online)

The Writing & Oral Communication Center offers live, online tutoring and workshops to Menlo students and also offers a new service–Online Document Review. Tutors can help you with any writing or speaking assignment, at any stage in the process—from brainstorming, thesis development, and outlining, to revision and documentation. Students can sign up for a thirty-minute session with an English instructor, an oral communication consultant, or an experienced, trained peer tutor. Each session is tailored to the student’s concerns and may focus on grammar, organization, style, structure, and/or presentation.

For all students in all classes working on any writing project at any point in the writing project (and also for English 100 students in the IWL)–to make an appointment for a one-on-one Zoom meeting with a writing tutor, please click the button below:

Online Document Review

It is now possible to submit a paper for comments without speaking to a tutor. Don’t worry, you can also make an appointment to speak with a tutor anytime.

If you would like a writing tutor to comment on any of your writing from any class or any personal project without your having to speak to a tutor, please complete this Google Form and upload your document through the form: https://forms.gle/aTGqe2JZ3SHQUmiL9

The tutor will contact you after the corrections have been made.

Oral Communication Tutoring

The Writing & Oral Communication Center offers oral communication consultation, including training in listening skills, interviewing, and the design, organization, and delivery of different types of presentations.  We offer tips on effective visual aids such as PowerPoint, and techniques to deal with speech anxiety. Presentations and interviews can be videotaped, so students have direct feedback on their performance.

To make an appointment for a one-on-one Zoom meeting with an oral communication tutor please email Erik Bakke at erik.bakke@menlo.edu.
