For Distance Students

The Writing Centre is pleased to offer services for MUN distance students who are residing outside of the greater St. John's area.

Who qualifies for distance services?

  • Students who live an hour or more outside of St. John's.
  • If you live in the greater St. John's area (less than one hour away), we ask that you use our in-person services.

Online services work like in-person services

  • Students can ask writing-related questions and submit documents for tutoring.
  • Tutors provide feedback on student assignments and making suggestions on ways to improve student writing.
  • Please be aware, though, that tutors DO NOT edit student work; instead tutors help students become better writers and self-editors.

Please keep in mind:

  • Please do not request multiple sessions at the same time. We can only assign one request at a time.
  • Students should expect a minimum 48-hour delay (2 business days) until a tutor is available.
  • We encourage you to apply any feedback you receive during your session to future papers. 
  • Please send all attachments as .doc or .docx files.
  • Note: If you submit a group paper, all of the authors must also send us an email granting us permission to work on the paper. Send emails to:
