We offer feedback on all written work for all University of Maine students, faculty, and staff.  We help you enhance your critical awareness of your own writing as we work one-on-one with you in a comfortable environment. Our tutors will focus on anything from creative to formal academic work. Students may also utilize the Writing Center as a quiet place to write while we are open.

What to bring to your tutoring session

The most important thing to bring is the assignment (if you have one) and any writing you have done so far on the assignment. Here is a helpful list of things to consider bringing:

  • The assignment (class notes, handouts, syllabus, etc)
  • Your paper, or multiple drafts of your paper
  • Research materials (this sometimes helps with citation questions or quoting)
