Writers’ Corner tutors are strong writers who are nominated and trained by our faculty. They are happy to assist their peers with a range of writing concerns:

  • Genres of writing (understanding assignment prompts)
  • Invention (getting started)
  • Arrangement (getting organized)
  • Thesis statements
  • Paragraph development and structure
  • Integrating sources
  • Common citation styles (MLA, APA, and Chicago/Turabian)
  • Sentence style (grammar, mechanics, etc.)
