Students can work with tutors one-on-one.
The Writing Studio at UMKC offers a
service that is free of charge for students. Peer tutors can help
students with a wide array of writing--everything from English to
economics, from music to science, from engineering to business. The
Writing Studio's services are available to all students at all levels,
from undergraduate to graduate. Tutors at the Writing Studio
help students improve both their papers and their ability as writers by
focusing on the organization and content of ideas within the paper over
the less immediate details of grammar, mechanics, and spelling.
Writing tutors primarily
work with writers face-to-face.
to meet with a Writing Studio tutor, you can walk in or, better yet, make
an appointment by calling (816) 235-1146. Tutoring sessions last twenty
to fifty minutes. Tutors will work with you at any point in the
writing process, so bring whatever you have, whether it is an assignment
sheet or your fifth draft. When working with a paper, we encourage
you to bring the assignment sheet as well.
