What can I use the Writer’s Studio for?

You can sign up for a tutorial and meet with a tutor to look over papers, notes, resumes, and more. You can also use the Studio for a quiet place to study, read, write, or complete coursework. The Writer’s Studio has two large rooms available for quiet study with ample desk space, comfortable chairs and couches, and we even have laptops available for Ohio State students.

Will my tutor proofread my paper? 

No, tutors do not proofread or edit papers, but that is not saying we won’t look over your writing. They do, however, listen, question, comment, provide feedback, and make suggestions to help you recognize both strengths and weaknesses in your writing.

How many tutoring sessions can I sign up for in a week?

You can sign up for one to four thirty-minute sessions in one week. You can schedule two of these sessions on the same day.

Can I print my essay at the Writer’s Studio?

Yes, you may print any essay from any Ohio State class if you are working with a tutor on that assignment. You cannot print research or personal materials.

Does the Writer’s Studio have computers?

Yes, the Writer’s Studio offers Ohio State students access to 16 different Dell laptops. Just provide your BuckID, or another form of ID (driver’s license, etc.), to a Writer’s Studio employee and ask to use a laptop. When using our laptops, you must remain in the Writer’s Studio.

Can a Writer’s Studio tutor work with me on any essay? 

Absolutely! Our tutors are trained and prepared to review any essay from any course. That means Psychology, Sociology, Education, History, Anthropology, Economics, and many more course writing assignments are welcome at the Writer’s Studio. All we ask is that you bring a prompt of the assignment and that you are able to fill us in on what you have been learning in class.

Can the Writer’s Studio help me with a cover letter or resume? 

Yes, our tutors can help you improve your applications, resumes, and cover letters.

Can I drop off my paper or email it to the Studio?

No. In order to have your essay looked at by a tutor, you have to schedule a tutoring session and sit down with one of our tutors. We want our sessions to be a learning experience for the student and the tutor; therefore, both must be present.
