Meet with a Grad Writing Tutor

Tutors can help you to

  •     clarify your goals
  •     improve your organization and writing style
  •     learn how to outline, draft, and revise your work
  •     practice the conventions of writing in your discipline
  •     notice patterns of error in your writing, which will help you to focus your editing and proofreading
  •     understand the rules of grammar, sentence structure, and punctuation.

Please note that Writing Centre tutors cannot edit or proofread your paper. They can teach you about writing using your work as an example of writing areas of strength and weakness.
