    • The tutor will probably first ask you what you want to work on
    • If you already have specific goals for your tutorial, please let the tutor know!
    • The tutor may talk to you about your ideas for your paper/topic
    • You will probably be asked to read your paper aloud (people often catch errors in reading that they haven’t seen before)
    • The tutor can help you find the strengths and weaknesses of your paper
    • The tutor may also help you organize your ideas, develop a strong thesis, enhance your academic language, or may suggest ways to strengthen your argument, etc.
  • Bring any of these that you have:

    • The written question or assignment from the professor
    • Your notes or draft
    • Any of the sources you are using
  • No, there is no need to send in the paper. For an in-person appointment, the tutor will go over the paper with you in the session. So please bring in a hard copy at the time of your appointment!

  • Yes, definitely! We can help you with any stage of the process of writing your paper, including brainstorming ideas or starting an outline.

  • You can get on a waiting list for a particular day. On the scheduler under each day, there is a link in yellow words that says “Is the time that you want already reserved? Click here to be notified of an opening in the schedule!” If you click on that link, and give an email address that you check regularly, the system will let you know ASAP if a slot on the schedule opens up.

    You can submit your paper online. In the same appointment system, under each day, there is a row of appointments under the title “Email Submission.” You can select any available appointment and upload your document after submitting the appointment. For documents 15 pages or less, we ask for 2 business days for a tutor to send your paper back. If your document is 16-50 pages, we ask for 7 business days.

  • Yes, we do, but there is no time allotted just for walk-ins. If you have already been to the WTC once that week and need a second session and if you see an open appointment time on the schedule, you can come to the WTC and ask the tutor if you can do a walk-in during that open time. The tutor can then meet with you.

  • No, we don’t format papers. However, we have all of the up-to-date manuals and we can help you look for patterns of inconsistencies in your formatting. We can also help you use the manual to answer difficult questions about formatting.

  • All of the WTC tutors have experience working with incoming graduate students as well as doctoral students further along in their studies.

    • You can do a walk-in
    • You can send a paper online
    • You can schedule regular appointments over several weeks
    • You can contact one of the proofreaders on our list (send us an email and we’ll send it to you)
