Online Writing Lab Tutoring

What can you expect from a writing tutoring session?

  • We read through your paper aloud together
  • We listen to your ideas and ask questions to develop your thesis and specific goals
  • We give you feedback and point out any confusing parts
  • We check if your paper meets the assignment goals and explain why if it does not
  • We help you to correct and avoid punctuation or grammar errors
  • Most one-on-one sessions last about 35 minutes

Other Writing Lab Services

  • In addition to spontaneous, drop-in visits, we now also offer appointments
  • Workshops for groups to work on common writing concerns (including grammar!)
  • Printable writing guides for a variety of writing topics
  • Videos of some writing workshop presentations
