One of the best resources that you have here as a student is to visit the Tiger Writing Lab online tutoring for writing assistance in phases of the paper. We offer assistance to all currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate student.  In the appointment, we will review your paper and assist with identifying your errors in the revision stage.

How Can the Writing Lab Help Me?

There are several ways that you can take advantage of the services provided by the lab. You can receive one-on-one help from a writing tutor by setting up an appointment. Tutorials generally last 30 minutes for an individual online. During the tutorial, you can get help working on writing issues such as focusing on the ideas / organization of your paper, polishing your final draft, etc. Keep in mind that tutors are not editors; they will work with you but they will not simply fix your paper for you.
