Writing and ESL Support for Emory College of Arts and Sciences Students

Tutors in the Emory Writing Center and the ESL Program are available to support Emory College students as they work on any type of writing assignment, at any stage of the composing process. Tutors can assist with a range of projects, from traditional papers and presentations to websites and other multimedia projects. Writing Center and ESL tutors take a similar approach as they work with students on concerns including idea development, structure, use of sources, grammar, and word choice. They do not proofread for students. Instead, they discuss strategies and resources students can use as they write, revise, and edit their own work. Students who are non-native speakers of English are welcome to visit either Writing Center tutors or ESL tutors. All other students in the college should see Writing Center tutors. Learn more, view hours, and make appointments by visiting the websites of the ESL Program and the Writing Center. Please review the Writing Center’s tutoring policies before your visit.
