Winter 2020 Writing Support

Students can stop by during our Writing Hub hours for a 30-Minute appointment with a tutor. Students will be seen in the order they arrive. In this appointment, students will share their process for writing (prewriting, drafting, revising, and editing) with a tutor and create a plan to strengthen their paper. Writing assistance is available for all upper and lower-division writing courses, personal statements, resumes and cover letters.

A Writing Studio tutor will also be present to assist students who seek to practice their process for writing with a writing tutor present for quick check-ins and questions.
