Here's How it Works

We're here to help

The Writing Center helps students with course assignments, personal statements, resumes — you name it. Schedule an appointment and get 45 minutes of individual attention on your writing for free.

Let's Get Started

Register on our online scheduler. Pick a time that is convenient. We are in Grant Hall 105 (next to Douglas and Lincoln), open Monday through Friday. When you come, let the desk person know your name. Your tutor will meet you and you will be on track for becoming a better writer.

Need help?

Need help making an appointment? Call us during business hours: 312-413-2206. Having trouble? Write the director, Vainis Aleksa. We love feedback! Had a great session? Send us a testimonial and a small image for our website.

How does it help?

All of us benefit from a little feedback, whether we are getting started or adding finishing touches. We help with writer’s block, assignment prompts, brainstorming, organization, making connections with readings, word choice, and sentence revision.

What can I expect when I come?

You and the tutor will begin by choosing priorities. You can expect tutors to treat your questions with care and respect. Tutors provide options, resources, and support for making improvements. Of course, the final responsibility for revising assignments remains with you.

Shout Out to Incoming Students from Summer

For the second summer in a row I have had the utmost pleasure of working with the students in the Summer Enrichment Writing Workshop (SEWW) here at UIC. Although these incoming first year students understandably saw this workshop as a chore, especially coming off of their senior year of high school, what they brought to the table was astounding.   […]

Tutor Corner -Steve Rusky
