The Writing Studio offers Duke University undergraduates an opportunity to meet with trained writing tutors to discuss individual writing concerns. As a studio, this is a place for students as artists/writers to work on their art. By discussing work-in-progress with a trained tutor, students are be better able to move toward developing the awareness and skills that will enable them to improve as a writer. Graduate and postgraduate student tutors from a number of different disciplines staff the Writing Studio. One specially trained tutor's main responsibility is to work with non-native speakers. Many tutors have had some experience serving as teaching assistants in their own departments, and others have had some tutoring experience as well. All tutors go through extensive on-going training. Visit their website for further information or to make an appointment.
