New! For Graduate Students--Meet with a Faculty Consultant
To expand and enhance our one-on-one graduate-level peer tutoring, we are introducing a pilot program for graduate students who wish to meet with a faculty writing consultant to discuss graduate writing projects, e.g., preliminary examinations or dissertation proposals, MA theses or projects, dissertation chapters, or seminar papers. A supplement (not a substitute) to others’ feedback, a consultation is another way to get feedback on a particular aspect of a graduate writing project. It is also a chance to discuss individual writing practices and the rhetorical and genre-related issues entailed in graduate-level critical writing.
Like all Writing Center sessions, these consultations will be conversational and interactive, designed to help you produce your best work.
This service is offered in addition to our normal tutoring services.
