Individual writing tutorial appointments (up to 50-minute sessions) are available to any MU undergraduate for any writing project, including creative writing pieces, scholarship essays, cover letters, personal statements, or pretty much anything else you can think of that involves writing.
All sessions are free and completely confidential.
Make an Appointment
You can now make appointments online via the Online Writery, from your internet-connected device of choice. You can still feel free to walk up to the Learning Center’s front desk or call us at 573-882-2496 as well.

What Should I Bring?
That depends on you! Students may visit a writing tutor at any stage of the writing process. It’s always helpful if you have access to your assignment sheet and any materials related to your project.
Writing Intensive (WI) Tutorials
If you’re enrolled in a WI course, you also have access to one of our WI tutors. These are graduate students from various disciplines across campus, usually familiar with the assignments and expectations of your course. When making an appointment for your WI course, you’ll be routed to one of these tutors.
