How does the Writing Lab help students?
A Writing Lab counselor can assist with every stage of the writing process:
- Brainstorming from your assignment
- Writing thesis statements
- Outlining an argument
- Recognizing recurrent grammatical errors
- Creating smooth transitions
- Composing polished prose
Experienced counselors evaluate drafts, identify areas for improvement, and explain strategies for effective essay structure. While they do not offer proofreading or editing services, they do offer advice on time management and project management techniques and also provide encouragement to help students become better writers.
