Individual Tutorial Sessions

To become an effective writer and speaker, seek feedback–like a professional. In the Richard Wright Center, trained peer tutors provide feedback and answer your questions.

Seek feedback on and talk through

  • your ideas or argument
  • your research
  • your class or conference presentation 

And more!

‚ÄčAsk questions about

  • assignments
  • strategies for overcoming "writer's block"
  • strategies for revising and editing
  • organization and supporting evidence
  • resources and reference materials
  • documentaion styles (e.g., MLA, APA, Chicago)

And more!

To work with a tutor:

  1. Make an appointment on our webpage or stop by. Try to come in at least 2 days before the paper is due, so you have time to make changes.
  2. Bring your assignment sheet with you, if you have one.
  3. Come in with a draft and a question. If you don’t have one, that is okay. Note: if you have a 15-page paper, please let us know about particular issues you you would like to focus on in the session.
  4. Be present, physically and mentally. A tutorial session is a conversation about your writing; tutors will need your input as much as you need theirs.
