WriteAway is British Columbia's collaborative online writing tutoring service. Learners at participating institutions receive feedback and strategies to improve their writing from qualified tutors.

WriteAway tutors provide feedback on course-based academic writing assignments keeping in mind the objective of developing the academic writing skills of the writer. Tutors will refer requests not related to the student’s academic career to other service providers.

Requests for asynchronous online tutoring:

  • may be submitted 7 days a week, 24 hours a day
  • will be responded to within 48 hours (although periods of high usage and low tutor staffing may result in longer turnaround times)
  • will be responded to in the order of submission
