Spring 2019: Free tutoring for UA students, January 14 - May 3, 2019

If you require more frequent tutoring within a two-week period, please call our main office at (520) 621-5849 to speak with our administrative assistant about purchasing tutoring appointment(s). All tutoring Is fee-based during UA academic breaks (Winter Recess, Spring Recess, Summer Recess).

About Tutoring Sessions

Tutoring sessions are 50 minutes long, and students may meet with the same or different tutors. Tutors serve as professional guides through the writing process, helping writers gain confidence, familiarity, and knowledge of academic and scholarly language and forms. Students discover and strengthen their "writerly" voices and improve their writing and critical thinking skills.

Tutoring is available throughout the year. Tutoring sessions may be conducted in person or online and focus on writing skills ranging from grammatical and mechanical concerns through brainstorming, organization, content development, source documentation, and online research. Non-UA students should visit the Fee-based Tutoring Information page or call our main office at (520) 621-5849 for details.

WSIP no longer offers tutoring or editing services for Comprehensive Exams. Review of Cover Letters, Résumés, and CVs is now part of our Job Market Preparation Services. See our fee-based services.

What are WSIP students saying?

My tutor was extremely helpful, and every time I left, I had a much better understanding of the assignment (if I was confused) and knew what I needed to do in order to improve my paper.
