The Writing Center
The Writing Center at UConn Waterbury assists students with essays, lab reports, term papers, academic or creative writing, multimodal projects, résumés, cover letters, and personal statements. Professionally trained peer tutors help students understand writing assignments, organize ideas, fine-tune thesis statements, develop more effective sentences, organize paragraphs, prepare citations, and more.
Types of Tutoring
In-Person Tutoring – Tutor and client are present together at the Writing Center.
Online (Synchronous) Tutoring – Tutor and client are present simultaneously in an online workspace via WCOnline.
Appointments are recommended for both in-person and online tutoring. Drop-ins are welcome if a tutor is available.
Tutoring sessions are approximately 1 hour. They combine discussion of the writer’s goals and some writing that contributes to the completion of the assignment.
