The Writing Support Service

The Writing Support Service is offering on the first come, first serve basis. This is a synchronous meeting; this means that the graduate students must be present to talk with the tutor their concerns or issues on their writing, dissertation chapters, manuscripts, or even brainstorming ideas for papers. Our motto is, "helping students become better writers, one paper at a time."

Every tutoring session is met via Zoom. Make an appointment online at
