Writing tutors and research mentors work with students in all classes at all levels of the curriculum. They can help you with any type of writing and at any stage of your writing process—even if you haven’t written anything yet.
All writers, no matter how skilled, need feedback on their work in order to improve. The tutors’ goal is to help you become a better writer no matter how strong or weak your current skills.
Did you know? The writing tutors themselves regularly seek out other tutors for feedback on their writing.
Types of Tutoring Available
Tutors can help with any writing for any class. They can assist with:
- Understanding assignments
- Generating ideas

Writing tutors do not edit or proofread papers. Instead, they help writers learn how to improve their own skills.
