The Graduate Writing Center offers free, one-on-one writing tutoring to all students.

Book an appointment for your one-on-one session.

Writing Sessions

  • You are limited to one appointment per week.

  • Sessions are 50 minutes.

  • Your session focuses on you and your needs. Remember that the writing tutors are committed to helping you become a better writer, but they are not going to “fix” your paper. Tutors help you brainstorm ideas, compose outlines, structure your paper, and adhere to stylistic conventions of their field (e.g., MLA, APA, or Chicago).

  • Email your paper to your tutor at least 24 hours before your appointment. Email us if you don’t know your tutor’s email address.

Drop In

On occasion, tutors are available to help on a drop-in basis. Email us or stop by the center to see if a tutor is available.


If you can’t make your tutoring session, please cancel it by logging into your account on Smoothbook and choosing “manage appointments.” Please email us if you have any questions.
