Online: Virtual Writing Center
(Live video conferencing)

Schedule an appointment through Microsoft Office Bookings. "Get Writing Tutoring"  You must use your CMCC email.  You’ll then receive an e-mail confirmation with a link to join the online session. If the times that are available don’t work, e-mail Dennis directly with your preferred times and he will schedule an appointment at your convenience.  dcamire@cmcc.edu.

Summer 2024 Online Schedule

Tuesdays: 5:00pm - 8:00pm
Wednesdays: 5:00pm - 8:00pm
Thursdays: 2:00pm - 4:00pm

*Also, by appointment

Scheduling tips: If you log in to the CMCC website at 6:30 pm on a Sunday and want to meet at that exact same time, you still need to make an appointment. Just click the link, "Get Writing Tutoring" and schedule an appointment for 6:30. If no-one is already scheduled for that time, you will be granted that appointment and all you need to do is wait five seconds for the appointment link to arrive in your email. If someone already has that time slot for an appointment, make an appointment for the next available half-hour block at 7:00 or 7:30 that same evening.  You can also simply make an appointment one day, or one week, or one month ahead of time to ensure you reserve the time slot you want.

Submit a paper through the Brightspace On-Line Writing Center

Start by adding the On-line Writing Center to your courses

  1. Go to the Discover tab at the top of your Brightspace homepage
  2. Search for On-Line Writing Center 
  3. Select “enroll”.  (Now the On-Line Writing Center will always be available in your list of courses.)

Select the On-Line Writing Center window and click on the "Assignments" tab.  Then select the assignment for the current semester (example: On-line Writing Center Submissions--Summer 2023).  After you submit your paper the tutors are notified that your paper has been uploaded and will generally respond within 24-48 hours.  Because many students submit their writing the last week of the term, no papers will be accepted within 3 days of your final assignment.

I graduated from UMA with a BA in English. Prior to UMA, I was a student here at CMCC and now I am back teaching and working in the Learning & Advising Center. Those students who come in scared to write and have no idea how to even get started are some of my favorite students because they leave with confidence and a good start on an otherwise overwhelming assignment.
