One-on-One Writing Tutoring

One-on-one writing tutoring is also available through Learning Support Services!

Writing tutoring is available in writing courses (like Writing 2) as well as for writing assignments in courses throughout the disciplines. In the writing tutoring sessions, students work one-on-one with a tutor who has taken a writing training class and has shown great writing skills. 

Writing tutoring works best when students come to the sessions prepared. This can mean, having read the prompt, started outlining the essay, having the readings done, bringing copies of your paper, etc.

All UCSC students are eligible for two hours of one-on-one tutoring a week through our program. Signing up for one-on-one writing tutoring is easy, sign into the On-line Tutor Sign-up System, search for writing tutors and choose a time that fits into your schedule!

Please note, due to funding restrictions LSS is not able to offer tutoring for College Core courses. Writing tutoring for these courses  are set-up by your instructor, not through LSS. Please see your instructor for more details about these specific courses.
