Your session with an RWIT tutor is a time to step back and examine your work with a fresh pair of eyes. A tutor can help you in all stages of the composing process, from brainstorming to final revisions. At the beginning of the session, the tutor will get acquainted with your assignment and your work. Please bring a copy of your prompt or assignment to your session. If you are at the brainstorming stage, expect a discussion about the assignment and your initial thoughts. If you have a draft or part of a draft written, expect the tutor to spend a few minutes reading it. For the remainder of the session, your tutor will engage you in dialogue about where and how you might improve your work. Tools such as outlining or reference materials may be used. We respect the privacy of our clients, and sessions will remain confidential.
Preparing appropriately for a meeting with an RWIT tutor is key to getting the most out of your session. To avoid complications, make sure you have permission from your professor to seek RWIT's help.
While tutors may note some errors on spelling and punctuation, tutors will mainly comment on the overall organization and flow of your paper. You may request that a tutor look for those errors, but please be aware that RWIT is not a copyediting service.
No. For an RWIT tutor to make any comments on your paper, you must attend the tutoring session.
Yes, but the group should contact the Head Tutor and the RWIT tutor they are scheduled to meet to let both of them know that multiple students will be attending the session.
RWIT tutors are trained as general readers. All tutors are capable of assisting students with projects, papers and assignments in any discipline. No need to worry about picking a specific tutor for any specific paper or project.
No. RWIT tutors are not permitted to engage in third-party discussions about a student's session.
