Welcome (or welcome back) to the Writing Lab at Georgetown University’s School of Continuing Studies! We are excited to offer the following services to students this semester.
Live (synchronous) tutoring
Meet one-on-one for 30-60 minutes with a writing expert. All of our tutors are English professors with at least a master’s degree. Tutors will read over your work with you and give you advice on the clarity, organization, cohesion, and citations of your papers. They will also help you with some mechanics and grammar, but please note these will not be the focus of the session. Sign up for synchronous tutoring here.
This was piloted in Fall 2020 to great success! It is now officially launching this semester. With asynchronous tutoring, you upload your assignment and receive a report with tutor feedback within 48 hours (not counting weekends). We use the same tutors for asynchronous tutoring as synchronous, so rest assured that all feedback is coming from trained writing experts. Learn more about asynchronous tutoring here.
Weekly Lunchtime Webinars
As usual, we’re offering several weekly webinars about a variety of writing or assignment topics to assist students. These happen most Tuesdays at noon. Read about this semester’s webinars and sign up here.
