The Writing Center welcomes all student writers, from first-year students to those in graduate programs, from students who find writing challenging to experienced writers looking to be even more effective.
Every writer can benefit from feedback and individual attention. Tutors are trained to support both native speakers of English and English Language Learners to develop and enhance writing skills. Tutors are trained to work with large-scale Graduate-level projects. Additionally, Graduate students can request to work with the Director or Professional Tutor. During half-hour and hour-long tutoring sessions, trained tutors assist students with any stages of the writing process: selecting a topic, brainstorming, outlining, drafting, organization, research, documentation, and revision. Appointments are required. Accommodations for online tutoring can be made via Zoom conferencing software upon request.
Use the following Sign-Up Genius link to schedule an online appointment during the period of remote access:
