Our writing tutors can help students with any aspect of the writing process, including:
- Creating an outline for the paper
- Reviewing the structure and content of the first draft
- Identifying issues with grammar and sentence structure
- Providing feedback on the final draft of the work
Tutors do not serve as editors of students’ papers. Rather, they assist students in a manner that moves along the writing process, and strengthens the students’ own skills and confidence with writing. Students should arrive at appointments with a description of the original assignment, a first draft if possible, and a willingness to be open to feedback.
