Undergraduate Turnitin Tutoring

Before you make an appointment, be sure to review the fuller description of this service on the Poorvu Center website.


To make an appointment to discuss the Turnitin analysis of your essay, please click the link on the left to register for an account.


After you sign in, you will see a schedule of available appointments. After you select a 30-minute appointment, you will receive a reply email that explains how to upload your paper to Canvas so that it can be analyzed through Turnitin. You must upload your paper at least 30 minutes before your appointment time, or the analysis (called a similarity report) will not be ready to discuss with your tutor.

You may make only one appointment per week through this service, and you may not make two Turnitin appointments for the same paper. If you want to work further on your essay, you may take it to a Residential College Writing Tutor or a drop-in Writing Partner. Those tutors will not be able to access your Turnitin similarity report, but they can help you with your use of sources for this or any other paper you’re writing at Yale.
