Here's How it Works
We're here to help
The Writing Center helps with assignments, personal statements, resumes — any writing at all. Often it is best to come with no writing at all and talk to a tutor about getting started. If you make an appointment, you can reserve a tutor for 30, 60, or 90 minutes. Best of all, the Writing Center is 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.
You are Welcome to Drop in!
You can make an appointment or you can drop in. If there is a line, we'll give you a place where you can comfortably work while you wait. If you need help making appointments, 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.
