Writing Support Services

Writing Support Services offers free half-hour individual writing tutorials for students at all levels who want to improve their writing. In a tutorial, students can

• Discuss their writing process and learn strategies to write more effectively
• Review returned papers to understand how to improve their written assignment
• Work with an instructor on an ongoing basis to improve essay structure, paragraph development, sentence structure and style, grammar, and punctuation
• Receive information on writing papers, book reviews, or other assignments
• Get advice on how to use and document sources
• Get help with English as a Second Language

Writing Support Services instructors will give general advice on papers being prepared for credit courses; however, they will not proofread student papers.
