The Westside Learning Commons provides peer tutoring services for all Westside Center and online-major students. Tutors can work with you on any assignment for any class to help you build your academic writing and research skills. Tutoring is available both in-person at the Des Moines center or online through Outlook email, Skype, or the "Online Learning Commons" in Canvas.

In-person: Writing tutoring is available in Des Moines on a drop-in or appointment basis. Drop-in is offered on a first-come/first-served basis. Appointments can be scheduled in Des Moines by emailing  westsidewc@cwu.edu or using our easy appointment request form at bit.ly/WestsideWCAppt.

Online:

Email- Westside students can  request an email review (48-hour-turnaround) with written feedback by emailing their papers (in an attached Word.doc), student ID, campus, major, course # , and professor to onlinetutoring@cwu.edu. Email requests must originate from your CWU Outlook email account.

Skype - Students should email onlinetutoring@cwu.edu to arrange for a Skype appointment. Our Skype address is CWU-UWC.

Canvas - Westside students are automatically enrolled in the "Online Learning Commons" in Canvas where "live" tutoring sessions are conducted through Blackboard Collaborate. If you are interested in receiving online writing help, please log into "Online Learning Commons" under your Canvas course list for specific tutors' drop-in hours.

To help us process your request in a timely manner, please fill out our student information form at bit.ly/OnlineTutoringAppt
