Peer Consulting Options

Our Peer Consultants Can

  • Assist students with basic grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure.
  • Assist in peer reviewing, speeches, lab reports, and journal entries.
  • Providing clarification/interpretation of written information to ESL & COLLS students. This can include reading comprehension and homework explanation.

Face-to-Face Consulting

Our consultants will work with each visitor for approximately 20-30 minutes at a time. This is to ensure that all students needing help are not kept waiting too long. The student may input the suggestions for revision elsewhere and then return to the Writing Support Studio as often as they want.

  • Provide instructor’s directions and rubric.
  • Visit the Writing Support Studio well in advance of your deadline.
