The English Writing Consultants' responsibilities include:
- Consulting one-on-one with international graduate students. The consultations focus on helping students acquire strategies to improve the organization, structure, vocabulary, grammar, and fluency of their writing and to ensure that the intended message is communicated in an effective and efficient way
- Leading workshops on English language use in research writing
- Facilitating graduate writers’ use of writing technologies for non-native speakers of English (e.g. search engines for linguistic data).
*In the interest of all parties, our writing consultants sign confidentiality agreements that protect the privacy of students seeking writing assistance and guard against the disclosure of sensitive data or information shared by students during tutoring sessions.
The English Writing Consultants operate within three dimensions, helping international graduate students in the following ways:
|Language needs awareness||
|Macro-level writing difficulties||
|Micro-level writing difficulties||
