A student shows her paper to a staff member at the writing center

The Illinois Tech Writing Center offers in-person and online collaboration sessions for individuals and small groups. We provide one-on-one conferences for undergraduate and graduate students. Students can seek assistance with all written and oral assignments as well as with personal statements and application essays. All tutor-student conferences are confidential and not linked to classroom instructors.

Our tutors can assist during any stage in the writing process, from brainstorming and outlining to final touches and reference sheets. They are trained professionals who read academic writing with a critical eye given not only to grammar and syntax, but also to understanding assignments, paragraph structure, clarity of ideas, strategies for revision, and even strength of arguments. Tutors specializing in English as a Second Language are also available to assist students whose primary language is not English.

Appointments are available five days a week during fall and spring semesters. 

You can view each tutor’s availability and make an appointment using the links below.

Please note that appointments must be made at least 24 hours in advance. 

Once you schedule an appointment, you will receive a confirmation email containing links to join the meeting via Google Meet or phone. You will be able to access the meeting from your computer as well as from your iOS or Android device.

To maximize the efficiency of each session, please do the following:

  • Create a Google Document with your paper and share it with your tutor. If you don't know how to convert your paper into a Google Doc, you can share a Microsoft Word document. Please do this at least five minutes before the time of the appointment. 
  • Send an email to your tutor that includes documents given to you by the instructor associated with the assignment.
