The Writing Lab at Oldfields
The Writing Lab at Oldfields is designed to help students during the writing process. By working with student tutors in one-on-one tutoring sessions, students can build their writing skills in any academic area.
What’s the focus?
Students are welcome to come in for a conference, at any point in the process from brainstorming to polishing a final draft, regardless of the subject of the assignment.
You may meet with a tutor to:
- focus a topic
- develop a thesis
- organize your essay
- strengthen specific mechanical elements
- revise a draft
Students should come to a tutoring session with questions such as: Is my thesis clearly stated? Do my supporting paragraphs strengthen my thesis? Are my sources cited correctly?
