Writing is a skill that takes a lifetime to master. The WRT Zone is dedicated to supporting all writers on this path, regardless of their level, by helping them understand the conventions appropriate for their courses and discipline. We provide our writers with the tools they need to be successful with specific writing projects, but also focus on helping writers develop as writers and become self-reliant. We strive to build an academic culture with bridges that link students, faculty, and staff together by providing educational opportunities for the entire campus. 


Tutoring Sessions

The WRT Zone is your academic partner, here to serve students, faculty, and staff alike. Undergraduate and graduate students from all disciplines can work with Undergraduate and Graduate tutors in one-on-one tutoring, online tutoring, group sessions, and student-focused workshops. 

Come in early on in your writing process so that we can help you navigate the multiple levels of the writing process. Sessions last up to 50 minutes. Tutors will work with students from initial idea development for an assignment all the way to the final draft of the assignment.
