Suffolk University’s Writing Center offers writing assistance to students at all levels in all disciplines. Our tutors are available to help you at all stages of the writing process, including brainstorming ideas and organizing these ideas into an outline. They can also work on thesis clarity, the overall organization and development of your paper, and sentence structure and grammar.
Please bring a hard copy of whatever progress you’ve made on your paper (a full draft, a partial draft, an outline, some ideas you’ve written down, etc.). Also, please bring any handouts the professor has provided that explain the requirements of the assignment.
Because there is high student demand for tutoring at busy times of the semester, we strongly encourage you to plan ahead when trying to schedule an appointment. On average, each tutoring session will last approximately 45 minutes. Our tutors are extensively trained upper-level undergraduate students who earned Writing Center Scholarships because of their high GPAs and outstanding academic performances. They come from a variety of disciplines, including English, communication, creative writing, sociology, philosophy, psychology, print journalism, and advertising.
