The Writing Desk

Tutors listen, ask questions, and provide guidance for any writer, on any paper, at any stage of the writing process.

Mon – Thur 9 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Fri 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Sun noon – 9 p.m.

In a tutoring session, you may work collaboratively with your tutor to:

  • Brainstorm ideas
  • Strengthen arguments
  • Develop evidence
  • Organize paragraphs
  • Learn proofreading strategies

Some writing tutors are also trained to offer speaking support; look for Gabe L, Madeline G, Maani E, or Zoë M when signing up for an appointment to brainstorm ideas, outline a speech, rehearse a presentation, polish your delivery skills, or lead/participate in a class discussion.
