Writing Support

LSS writing tutors are undergraduate peer tutors who provide writing assistance across all disciplines to support students in their academic and career goals. Our vision is to advance students’ writing skills and develop their writing process so that they may feel more confident as university-level writers. UCSC undergraduates are eligible for up to two hours of one-on-one tutoring per week. Due to funding restrictions, LSS does not offer tutoring for Core courses. Contact your Core instructor for information about writing tutoring for Core.

Why should I meet with a Writing Tutor?

All writers seek feedback on their work and make a habit of talking out ideas, processes, and habits with others writers. Whether you’re a seasoned researcher and writer or just starting out in your collegiate writing career, LSS writing tutors create spaces where students can converse about their writing and reading, learn revision strategies, and improve their understanding of their personal writing processes.
