Facilitated Small Group Tutoring

Would you like supportive and constructive feedback on a writing project?  Do you need help brainstorming, organizing, or developing your ideas?  Staying on task?  Wrestling with English grammar and/or style?  We provide opportunities for groups of 3-4 folks to meet together with a WSIP writing professional for 1 hour and 50 minutes at a time.  Groups may meet as often as once every two weeks or as infrequently as once or twice per semester.  Participants may be from the same or different disciplines, ESL/multilingual or native English speakers, and at any stage of their academic career. You may attend in person or online. 

Small Groups are FREE for UA students, and you may attend them in addition to seeing us for individual tutoring.

Small Groups are also available to non-UA students for a fee.

What to Expect

In Small Group, you will: 

  • Receive training to provide effective feedback
  • Share your writing with the tutor and peers to receive feedback


You must:

  1. have a writing project to review or discuss during each scheduled meeting
  2. honor the stringent absence policy that applies to the writing groups (Only one absence per semester allowed because groups are small and all members are essential at each meeting.)
