Our volunteer tutors provide useful and informed feedback on English for Academic Purposes (EAP) students’ writing at different stages of the writing process. Tutors help EAP students get started, find appropriate sources, brainstorm ideas, create outlines, work on thesis statements, structure & organize texts, maintain coherence & cohesion, and self-assess produced texts.
The WTP runs on a one-on-one session basis. Each session takes up to an hour. EAP students bring a copy of the assignment instructions, notes, outlines, or drafts they have already created to work on with their tutors. Both EAP students and their tutors set goals and strive to achieve them.
Tutors do not write, proofread, or edit EAP students’ writing. Rather, they provide higher-order-thinking feedback on their writing, such as feedback on introductory, body, and conclusion paragraphs, strong thesis statements, relevant supporting points & details, unity, organization, coherence & cohesion, and language usage.
