Our Mission

 

The WUST Writing Lab offers a free collaborative space in which all members of the WUST community can find support for their efforts to become more effective writers. We aim to empower writers to discover their own solutions to the challenges in their writing and gain confidence in their English language skills through one-on-one collaborative tutoring sessions. Our goal is not to “fix” papers for students, but rather to help them discover solutions. We help students brainstorm, problem-solve, and revise their writing, as well as provide a wide range of support resources.
