What We Do:
We will help you with writing assignments for classes, theses, statements of purpose and other applications materials, GRE essays, or anything else you can think of. We are happy to help you with writing in the humanities as well as the sciences. Our goal is to help you improve the content and structure of your writing, not just to proofread. Appointments typically last one hour. The best way to set up an appointment is to email or call us, but you are also welcome to drop in (see below for hours). We hope to see you soon!

Location: We are currently next to the MORE Programs office in Physical Sciences 512.
