  • Twenty-minute, one-to-one tutorial workshops on your writing projects.
  • Help with brainstorming, organizing and developing ideas.
  • Help with reading difficult texts or articles.

When you arrive for your appointment, bring along:

  • A draft of your assignment.
  • An assignment sheet and notes regarding your writing task.
  • A list of your questions, concerns and frustrations.
