Are You a Graduate Student?
We're not just for undergraduates!
We have graduate tutors who are happy to work with you with writing ranging from seminar papers, masters theses and essays of distinction, fellowship applications, prospectuses and dissertation chapters. We can also work with writing strategies and outlines for comprehensive exams.
You can either sign up for an appointment on the schedule, or you can email a graduate tutor to set up an appointment.
Because of the complexity of graduate-level writing, we ask that you send an electronic copy of the writing you want to go over 24 hours before your appointment. It's easier for our tutors if you bring in a hard copy of your writing on the day of your appointment, too.
Additional information about scheduling and cancellations can be found here.
