Writing Coaches for Success

A writing coach (tutor) is free to currently enrolled LSCS students. No appointment is necessary. During busy times, coaches may limit sessions to 20-30 minutes. Writing coaches do not proofread your paper, rather they help you refine structural issues in your paper. They identify weaknesses within your writing and strengthen those areas to help you produce a better product. To maximize this process:

  • Bring a copy of your assignment, along with any other necessary course materials and textbooks.
  • Ask specific questions.
  • Allow enough time to complete your assignment before the deadline.

Writing & Reading Hotspot

The Writing & Reading Hotspot is available for in-person walk-ins.

Words about Writing

"Most of my work consisted of crossing out. Crossing out was the secret of all good writing."
             - Mark Haddon, author of ​The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time


Your first draft, second or third; don't worry about perfection. It is progress over perfection that wins the day.
