Individual Tutoring, Small Groups and Clinics for GWAR Students

We provide weekly individual and group tutoring for students in GWAR classes; this type of tutoring is helpful for students who might benefit from on-going assistance with their writing.  We can also arrange clinic hours for your students, in which students from a GWAR class meet two - three times over the course of the semester with an experienced tutor to work on a specific writing task or assignment.  In the past, the LAC has provided clinics for GWAR students focusing on the following writing tasks: brainstorming ideas for writing assignments, organizing and classifying information, citing sources, reviewing APA or MLA citations, honing proofreading skills.

Skills Developed in a Tutoring Session

At the LAC, tutors and faculty work with GWAR students to complete assignments while practicing effective reading and writing strategies. We focus on all stages of the writing process.  

  • understanding and fulfilling writing assignments
  • narrowing a research question 
  • finding and evaluating sources 
  • drafting and revising 
  • following citation guidelines
