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.
Online tutoring is available for students taking online courses. To request that a tutorial take place online, students should create an appointment in Starfish with a tutor, then email email@example.com at least 24 hours prior to the appointment to request that it be held online. Include the time and date of the tutorial, and name of your assigned tutor.
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 request online appointments by making an appointment and emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to request that the appointment be held online. This must be done 24 hours prior to the appointment.
Students may also request administrative tutoring for larger writing projects including theses or dissertations. To do so, email email@example.com and describe your writing project as well as the nature of your writing support needs.
