The Cornell Writing Centers offer free, one-on-one writing tutoring for all Cornell students. This semester, tutoring begins on Monday, February 3rd! Students can either simply walk-in or schedule an appointment online via https://cornell.mywconline.net/

Writing Centers tutors are trained undergraduate and graduate students from across the disciplines who can work with you to: 

  • Understand what an assignment is asking for in terms of writing;
  • Brainstorm ideas for getting started on a new assignment;
  • Develop stronger ideas, arguments, claims, and source-use in essay drafts;
  • Read drafts in order to locate writing issues and develop strategies for revision;
  • Incorporate sources and evidence responsibly and effectively;
  • Consider questions of depth, analysis, organization, audience expectation, paragraph development, and style;
  • Identify patterns of error in grammar or usage in order to develop strategies for line-editing.
