Writing Tutorial

 Students enrolled in composition courses (WR 121, WR 122, and  WR 123) may attend tutoring through a one-credit course (WR 195). They may also receive composition tutoring as they choose, at any stage of the writing process. 

Here, students can work with a tutor to: 

  • Develop ideas 
  • Organize an argument 
  • Find and support a strong thesis 
  • Craft clearer, more effective essays 
  • Work on counterarguments 
  • Improve essay structure 
  • Hone writing style 
  • Engage sources 
  • Revise a rough draft 

To get started: 

  1. For composition tutoring, go to the WR 195 Writing Tutorial site to schedule an appointment. 
  2. Click "Create New Account." You'll be asked to create a username and password. 
  3. Log in with your new username and password. 
  4. Schedule a tutoring session by clicking on "Tutoring Calendar" and choosing an available time.
