What is it?

The Writing Studio is a free tutoring service that provides students with assistance on papers in the English language for most Tulane undergraduate courses. The Writing Studio tutors can work with students on almost several general writing skills, including, but not limited to:

  • Essays written for Graduate/Professional classes, conferences, or publications
  • Master’s or Doctoral theses
  • Articles written for publication in the Hullabaloo, Gambit, Offbeat, etc…
  • Application essays
  • Personal statements
  • Cover letters
  • Take-home exams
  • Essays written for classes in the Freeman School of Business at any level

  • Provide their instructor’s e-mail address
  • Arrive for the appointment at least five minutes in advance
  • Bring a PRINTED copy of the essay
  • Bring all materials related to the assignment (the assignment prompt, comments from the instructor, drafts, notes, peer review sheets, etc…)
