I got stuck while writing a mail to my students in which I am saying that they should resume their classes from Tuesday on.

I'm out of town on Monday. You can come from/on Tuesday on.

We use from to start a point of 'onward.' From 6 p.m. on which means it starts at 6 p.m. and then it'll go on.

I also know that we have 'on' for days - on Monday/Tuesday... and so on. Grammarly corrected my sentence and said 'on.' But how would it look then?

You can come on Tuesday on!

    On sounds odd at the end of the sentence. It can be omitted completely or replaced as suggested above. But often, one can simply rephrase to avoid any confusion, as in: Classes will resume on Tuesday. Nov 29, 2017 at 11:36

    One writes mail, or a letter, or email, or an email, but "writing a mail" is an unusual usage. Compare this...

Classes will resume on Tuesday. There's no need for the "on" or "onward", since resume means to get back to the normal or usual schedule.
