The Writing Lab assists Clarkson College students with all levels of writing. Students receive tutoring from peers who provide direction at every stage of the writing process, including beginning a paper, writing a thesis, organizing ideas, using APA style or simply getting feedback from a second pair of eyes.

What to Expect

Tutoring sessions are typically 45 minutes. Tutors provide constructive feedback and suggestions for how to revise your writing. As follow up, the tutor will ask your permission to send a brief note to your instructor discussing your tutorial.

What to Bring

Bring a copy of your assignment, the rubric and/or the class syllabus. If this is a second draft, bring in the first draft with the instructor's comments.

Come prepared with specific questions and goals in mind.

Make an Appointment
