What we do: The English Writing Clinic provides writing help in English to undergraduate and graduate students, and staff. In one-on-one 20-40 minute consultations, Language Centre teachers offer feedback and strategies to help you to develop your strengths and identify your weaknesses as a writer.
The English Writing Clinic can help with—
- Structuring academic essays and research papers
- Focusing ideas and connecting thoughts at section, paragraph, and sentence level, and strengthening your understanding of grammar, punctuation, and style
- Utilizing the conventions appropriate for different types of texts, including letters, emails, CVs, memos, instructions, applications, reports, proposals, and presentation slides
- Finding self-study material to help you with any weaknesses identified
What we don’t do: Proofread and edit. We help you develop the skills to proofread your own work to improve your own writing. For this reason, all work should be accomplished in the consultation time: teachers will not read work before or after the meeting time.
How to use the English Writing Clinic: Consultation times will be available from 13th February onwards. You may schedule a session using the following link: http://doodle.com/poll/ku4f2gws3qv2wf43
Please note that no more than 2 consecutive time slots of 20 minutes each can be booked.
The English Writing Clinic is located in the Self-Access Centre in the Language Centre in Pinni B 5071.
