Veronica Oliver: Okay, so who we are we're professional and friendly teachers and writers were writing instructors who work with.

00:24:37.650 --> 00:24:53.970
Veronica Oliver: All students at the undergraduate masters and doctoral and certificate stage of their program we work with students on coursework pre proposals and paper review appointments or i'm sorry through paper review appointments.

00:24:55.980 --> 00:25:07.680
Veronica Oliver: We help in a variety of different ways, with writing skills and APA so as you can see here anything from organization with writing skills to grammar.

00:25:09.480 --> 00:25:20.040
Veronica Oliver: Being a student writer some tips and tricks, if you have writing anxiety, we can provide you some tips for that as well as APA style.

00:25:23.250 --> 00:25:33.810
Veronica Oliver: How can you collaborate with the writing Center well, it depends on the type of assignments, the assignment deadline your time and your learning preferences.

00:25:35.940 --> 00:25:43.110
Veronica Oliver: So say you have a paper do tonight so you're looking basically for pretty much for immediate help.

00:25:44.190 --> 00:25:50.850
Veronica Oliver: We can always explore website on our website, you can find everything from.

00:25:51.990 --> 00:26:10.350
Veronica Oliver: grammar modules to APA webinars any type of writing or APA subject in several different types of formats, so we have you know web pages with modeling of different types of APA and writing.

00:26:12.390 --> 00:26:23.670
Veronica Oliver: Different types of writing an APA and we also have like modules and webinars so there's a little bit something for everyone, depending on your time, as well as you're learning preference.

00:26:25.080 --> 00:26:33.930
Veronica Oliver: You can also use i'm sorry, you can also use grammarly grammarly is is a checker it's sort of like word spell check.

00:26:35.280 --> 00:26:52.620
Veronica Oliver: I do want to say that grammarly is not perfect, as a software program it can make mistakes, so you want to use it at your own discretion, but you can use grammar lee's premium program for free with your Walden new email address.

00:26:55.500 --> 00:27:07.080
Veronica Oliver: So say you have a couple days before you need an answer, so you need help within 24 hours but it's not as immediate as you need help right away.

00:27:07.590 --> 00:27:22.560
Veronica Oliver: One thing you can do is email us so writing instructors watch our writing support at Walden you EDU email box for students who write in and ask us general writing APA.

00:27:23.130 --> 00:27:33.090
Veronica Oliver: grammar and other questions we'll get back to you within 24 hours and usually what we like to do is, we like to sometimes model for students or.

00:27:34.170 --> 00:27:41.280
Veronica Oliver: provide them a link to a resource that we have that would be helpful, such as something on a PA or grammar.

00:27:42.960 --> 00:27:47.310
Veronica Oliver: Or you know another writing aspect, depending on what the students looking for.

00:27:49.380 --> 00:28:00.690
Veronica Oliver: So say you want to develop your writing skills you don't need an answer for a week or more you're looking for more long term support.

00:28:03.930 --> 00:28:09.390
Veronica Oliver: What we do have for students is our pay per view appointment service.

00:28:09.900 --> 00:28:20.130
Veronica Oliver: Which is basically our kind of premier service what we do as writing instructors is we provide feedback to students to help them develop their writing skills long term.

00:28:21.090 --> 00:28:37.620
Veronica Oliver: Our feedback includes many lessons sometimes we'll do many lessons where we model, a certain APA or writing aspect we provide links to our resources so students can continue to build their skills in a specific APA or writing.

00:28:39.000 --> 00:28:44.670
Veronica Oliver: aspect and we help students build and take ownership of the revision process.

00:28:47.460 --> 00:29:05.010
Veronica Oliver: So steps to reserving a pay per view appointment, you can make an appointment through the wall your Walden portal and basically what we do is we use my pass as our scheduling system for paper views and there you'll be able to see how many.

00:29:06.270 --> 00:29:16.590
Veronica Oliver: who's available for a pay per view appointment and just to know our paper review appointments do fill up quickly, so it is better to plan ahead if possible.

00:29:17.130 --> 00:29:30.900
Veronica Oliver: And then you can complete the form, and you can provide your writing instructor details, for instance, is there a type of way in which you like to receive writing feedback, do you like, highlighting, is there a type of modeling.

00:29:32.190 --> 00:29:40.500
Veronica Oliver: that's more helpful for you are you more of an auditory learner you know, would you like your writing instructor to link you to.

00:29:41.190 --> 00:29:57.510
Veronica Oliver: A webinar, for instance, to help you for further develop a certain skill and APA writing you do need to attach your paper by 5am Eastern time the day of the appointment or immediately after you make an appointment if it's the same day appointment.

00:29:58.560 --> 00:30:09.960
Veronica Oliver: And then you can relax and your writing instructor will notify you by email when your paper of us complete and that'll be either the day of the review or the day after.

00:30:11.820 --> 00:30:16.470
