The Writing Center
Writing Center is a safe space for students to come and seek help with their writing, irrespective of their command over the language or their confidence regarding it. With peer-led tutoring sessions and organized events centered around academic and creative writing, we aim to help students become better writers and thinkers.Download Writing Center Brochure
Nature of Work
The tutors at the writing center will be present at scheduled hours to offer students the help they need with their writing, especially helping them to think through concepts using different strategies and resources.
We are here to help students better their individual writing, reading and thinking capacities. The writing center isn't a quick-fix clinic of bad grammar nor should it be seen as a place to get people to do your assignments.
Assignments are a big part of the student life and not everyone is spot on with their grammar. We encourage students to take these free sessions where we help you by :
- Giving you feedback and helpful suggestions on your writing
- Teaching specific writing skills like structuring essays, basic grammar, citation (APA and MLA formats)
- Reading difficult texts with you to help understand and critically analyse them
- Familiarizing you with academic papers and journals
What Will a Session be Like?
The session will be between 15 minutes to an hour long, consisting of three key elements:
- Student-tutor interaction
- Trial and error practice
- Reading, writing, editing and interpreting
How To Book a Session?
Students can drop in during the fixed hours the writing center stays open. It is, however, recommended that they pre-book sessions via email, mentioning the help they need, the time they want and attaching the writing they need help with. Please inform a day ahead to let the tutors prepare. You will receive a response, either confirming or cancelling the session.
