Welcome to the UAS Ketchikan Online Writing Center!
We offer both synchronous and asynchronous tutoring to students enrolled in Ketchikan campus classes (KD). Synchronous tutoring takes place via eLive Blackboard Collaborate WebMeeting. where both the tutor and the student are simultaneously engaged in an online, real-time chat.
Asynchronous tutoring does not require that the tutor and the student are online at the same time. The student submits a paper using the Writing Center Blackboard site or by email. The tutor reviews the paper and emails it back to the student at a later time. In addition, the Ketchikan Online Writing Center (KOWC) offers asynchronous online resources (see the link below).
Meet our Tutors:
Kasia Polanska, Ph.D.
I am happy to meet with you locally in my office, via the Blackboard Collaborate WebMeeting, which you can access via the link to the Blackboard site. I can also comment on papers submitted via the Writing Center Blackboard site (see the link below) or sent to me by email. Feel free to get in touch with me if you need help!
Teague Whalen, M.F.A.
I am happy to meet with you locally in my office or in a Blackboard Collaborate WebMeeting, which you can access via the link to the Blackboard site. I work with student writing for ANY UAS course and I generally read and comment on the paper during our tutoring session and not before. I look forward to working with you.
