All successful students, writers and scholars know that writing well is hard work. Those same students, writers and scholars also know that soliciting feedback from thoughtful readers is one of the best ways to improve their writing. Writing tutors at Wilson are just such thoughtful readers.
All currently enrolled graduate and undergraduate students at Wilson have access to the Wilson College Writing Lab, where we provide both in-person and online support. Students can come to the writing lab for help with writing assignments in any discipline, at any stage of the writing process. We can offer support as students brainstorm, draft, revise and proofread─just not in one session. Our aim is to impart writers with transferable skills and to that end, we set limited priorities for each appointment and attempt to show writers how to develop, revise and edit their own work. We often see the most significant improvements in students’ performance and confidence when they schedule recurring appointments with us. We also encourage students to schedule appointments in advance of due dates so they have adequate time to revise their work.
*It can also be helpful to bring instructor feedback on current or past assignments.
“(My writing tutor) was awesome in teaching APA format and showing me a new tool for doing revisions! Will definitely be coming back for more insights.”
“(My writing tutor) was very easy to communicate with. She provided a comfortable learning environment that was supportive and encouraging. It is my hope that we can continue to work together throughout the semester.”
“I have not written an English paper in probably 25 years so I was relieved to have the option of using the online writing lab. (My writing tutor) provided some very specific feedback, which I will be able to incorporate immediately.”
