A Writing Coach is available to help UW Flexible Option students enrolled in a University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Flexible Option program with their written assessments. In many instances, the Writing Coach will have knowledge about the specific assessments to offer customized support. The Writing Coach provides suggestions and points out ways to improve mechanics, clarity and meeting the goals of the assessment.
The Coach will:
- Provide detailed feedback on student writing
- Help students prepare work for assessment
- Discuss feedback received on previous assessments
- Provide feedback on an assessment prior to submission
- Address anxiety for students who are nervous about submitting work
- Consult with students who have failed written assessments
Students can reach the Writing Coach at firstname.lastname@example.org. Responses will typically be provided in 24 to 48 hours, but please plan for up to a four day response time during peak times.
