Research & Writing Tutors

Peer Research & Writing Tutors are available at any stage of your research and/or writing process.

Tutors can help you brainstorm ideas and keywords, find good sources for your research, organize your research, and help cite sources. They can also help you strengthen arguments, develop evidence, structure your writing, and learn to identify and correct patterns of error on your own.

Tutors are available in Rolvaag Sunday-Thursday (8-10pm) for drop-in help or by appointment.

For writing support outside the above hours, consider making an appointment at The Writing Desk located in Tomson Hall.
