To make an in-person appointment for writing, you can call (816) 271-4524 or stop by the CAS. We also take walk-ins if slots are available. Online writing appointments can be scheduled via TutorTrac.
Writing tutors will assist you with any phase of the writing process, including help with correctness. What happens during a 30-minute appointment will depend on where you are in the writing process. Tutors could assist with any of the following:
- Topic choice
- Pre-writing strategies
- Supporting detail
- Adherence to assignment guidelines
- Editing techniques
At the end of the session, tutors will encourage clients to make the appropriate revisions and then come back for a follow-up appointment. A Writing Tutorial Summary describing what occurred in the session will be sent to the student’s instructor after each appointment, unless the student wishes for the appointment to remain confidential.
Writing tutors also assist clients with non-class-related writing such as resumes, cover letters, applications for scholarships, or personal statements for admission into graduate school.
