Syllabus statement

The University Writing Center offers free writing assistance for all UAB students. We help at any stage of the writing process and with any type of writing. Currently, all tutoring sessions are remote. Students may either meet with a tutor via Zoom (face-to-face tutoring) or upload a paper for feedback (eTutoring). During face-to-face Zoom sessions, tutors can help at any stage of the writing process: tutors can help you understand your assignment, develop and organize your ideas, use and cite sources, revise and edit your draft, and more. When you upload a draft for an eTutoring session, tutors can provide feedback on both big-picture issues and detail-oriented concerns; please note that you do need a draft to use eTutoring. 

To make an appointment or get more information, please see the UWC website. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for daily news and quick writing tips.
