Writing Help

Our writing consultants hold-face-to-face appointments on the Parkville campus and some also hold virtual appointments to help with papers in all academic subjects. They can help students at all stages of the writing process:  planning, drafting, revision, and editing. The consultant will not “fix” your paper, but will assist you in identifying and correcting problems. Consultants can also help you with determining proper citation of sources and avoiding plagiarism. Schedule your appointment at our TutorTrac site.  Students at other campuses and online students can submit drafts for review or even hold virtual live tutoring appointments. To connect with a writing tutor online, enroll in the Canvas course Park Tutoring Help. Enroll
