Mission ● About Us ● Schedule an Appointment  Zoom


Our mission is to support students across disciplines in their growth as writers. Appointments with tutors are driven by the writer’s assignment as well as the writer’s questions and concerns about the assignment. We help to guide writers on the path to success. While each appointment is tailored to the writer, here are some examples of how we can support writers:

  • Review assignment requirements
  • Discuss, focus, and organize ideas
  • Draft or revise thesis statement
  • Integrate sources
  • Follow formatting guidelines
  • Identify areas of strength and areas for improvement

About Us

The Writing Studio is apart of the Learning Center on the first floor of Mowrey Hall, The Student Success Center. 

We offer one-on-one writing support with trained peer tutors at any stage of the writing process: planning, drating, revising, and proofreading. We do our best to assist you with any undergraduate writing assignment in any discipline. Graduate students should visit the Graduate Writing page for support.

Writing tutoring in the Learning Center is conversational and collaborative. You and your writing tutor will likely discuss your assignment prompt and requirements, read your writing aloud together, and identify strategies to help you write or to make your writing more effective. You do not need a draft of your writing to schedule an appointment, but please bring any course materials that will help your tutor help you.

Schedule an Appointment

Undergraduate students can access instructions here.

Graduate students should visit the Graduate Writing webpage

In an effort to serve all students, we ask that you please do not schedule back-to-back appointments for the same service. We encourage distributed learning, which requires study sessions of relatively short duration (1-hour or less) over a period of time.


Appointments are currently taking place in person; however, students have the option to join tutoring appointments via Zoom if unable to attend in person. To use Zoom, you will need internet access and a computer equipped with a camera and microphone. For instructions on how to use Zoom, please click here

If you do not have the proper equipment for Zoom, please visit the technology resources page. Please be sure to have the appropriate equipment by the time of your appointment.
