Academic Writing Tutorials &
Proofreading Sessions Spring 2018

The Academic Writing Tutorials & Proofreading Sessions provide you with the opportunity to have your written work checked by an English instructor. You can sign-up for a 45-minute private (one-on-one) tutorial session in which an instructor will check your actual paper to find areas which need improvement. Students who are planning on submitting a thesis or any other form of academic paper but lack confidence in your English writing ability should take advantage of this opportunity.

*We recommend you to use "Turnitin" (electronic text-matching system) before your tutorial sessions. For more details, please see this information. (Service available period: June and July)
*Please note that the Turnitin screening service is available only to those who registered for the Tutorial sessions.
