UST Center for Writing

UST Writing CenterWould you like some expert assistance with writing and editing your paper? The Writing Center offers students studying abroad “e-tutoring”: you can visit the Center’s web site, register for an account, and request an online e-tutoring appointment.  Follow their online instructions to attach a draft of your paper (no matter how rough) and tell the Undergraduate Peer Consultants what your concerns are. The consultant then takes the allotted hour to work on the paper and get ideas for development and revisions back to you.
