Individual writing tutorial appointments (up to 50-minute sessions) are available to any MU undergraduate for any writing project, including all course-related assignments, personal statements, cover letters, scholarship essays, creative writing pieces, or pretty much anything else you can think of that has sentences.

All sessions are free and completely confidential.

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.
