SSS Writing Fellow
SSS Writing Services provides one-on-one tutoring in all written, oral, and multi-media projects. Students are encouraged to meet with the Writing Fellow at any point in the writing process: brainstorming, pre-writing, drafting, or revising. The goal of a writing consultation is to make progress on an assignment while also becoming familiar and comfortable with writing as a process. Writing consultations are interactive, and students should be ready to be involved in a collaborative process. Consultations focus on larger issues in the writing process, such as crafting an argument, organizing ideas, and conducting scholarly research. Writing consultations are not an editing service, and students should not expect the tutor to simply edit their papers for grammatical or stylistic errors. However, if grammar and style are a concern, the student can bring these issues to the consultant's attention and activities can be planned to help improve these areas over time.
Once an appointment has been made, students should plan to bring in any materials they have for the assignment, ranging from assignment directions, grading rubrics, instructor feedback, pre-writing, research, to drafts. Having everything available to discuss helps decide the best approach for completing the assignment successfully. The consultant holds day and evening hours to accommodate students' busy schedules. Online appointments are also available upon request. Appointments typically run about an hour, but are flexible depending on students' individual needs and concerns.
