Formally trained Writing Tutors work with students one-to-one, and tutoring sessions typically run 30 minutes for short papers, 50 minutes for longer papers. Drop-in tutoring is available if a tutor is free.

Tutors offer assistance with all types of writing, both academic and non-academic, and work with students at any stage of the writing process. Tutorials are conversation-based. You can expect to read through your writing with an experienced and knowledgeable tutor, talk about what’s working well, and what could improve.

Support for Graduate Students

The Center for Academic Achievement supports the writing of graduate students seeking advanced degrees by employing accomplished undergraduate, graduate, and professional tutors. Tutors provide support for all types of writing in any and all disciplines. Students may make an appointment in Starfish via the mylasalle portal.

Students may also request administrative tutoring for larger writing projects including theses or dissertations. To do so, email and describe your writing project as well as the nature of your writing support needs.
