Tutoring by Appointment


We offer FREE and FEE-BASED writing support. See below for details. 

WSIP Writing Specialists support writers throughout the writing process, helping them gain confidence and knowledge of academic and scholarly language and forms. Writers discover and strengthen their "writerly" voices and improve their writing and critical thinking skills. Our specialists support writers at all academic levels to plan, draft, review, and finalize documents. We work with students, instructors, faculty, and professionals. 

On-line consultation sessions involve using an on-line meeting platform such as Skype or Zoom, and Google Docs. Your Writing Specialist will send you information about accessing the platform. To learn more about using Google Docs with your appointment, visit our YouTube instructional video.

Please note: While we are happy to work with you, individual specialists can’t always see writers who request them directly. If you are not able to schedule the specialist you have requested, please remember that all Writing Skills faculty can help you. You can read more about our faculty under "About" (http://wsip.arizona.edu/people).

WSIP does not offer tutoring for Comprehensive Exams.

Review of cover letters, résumés, and CVs is now part of our Job Market Preparation services. Please see our fee based-services page for more information.
