Writing Center Support for Emory College Students

The full Emory Writing Center staff of undergraduate tutors and graduate fellows is available remotely this fall to support Emory College students as they work on any type of writing assignment in any field: sciences, social sciences, or humanities.

Tutors can assist with a range of projects, from traditional papers and presentations to websites and other multimedia projects. 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.

Tutors also support the literacy needs of English Language Learners; several tutors are ELL Specialists, who have received additional training. The online Writing Center opens for fall on August 31st, with hours throughout the day to accommodate students in various time zones.

Learn more and make an appointment at writingcenter.emory.edu. Please note that you need to make (and cancel) appointments at least 3 hours in advance to accommodate our remote staff.
