The Writing Lab offers one-to-one tutoring to students who want help in developing the skills necessary for effective writing. The Lab approaches writing primarily as a process. Students are encouraged to bring in projects at any stage of completion — rough notes, drafts, finished essays, graded papers — and are offered help with any aspect of the writing process.

Here is a brief overview of what we can do:

  1. Help to strengthen your thesis
  2. Help to analyze your topic
  3. Work with you on all aspects of your writing process:
    • Starting to write
    • Developing paragraphs
    • Constructing sentences
    • Punctuating correctly
    • Proofreading and editing
  4. Address specific questions about writing
  5. Help with style and format of papers
  6. Address specific difficulties or concerns based on your inquiry about assignments and/or writing in your classes
  7. Work with you on a long-term basis or on individual assignments
