If you need assistance with a writing assignment, or just want to talk through ideas for an essay, please stop by. 

A peer tutor can help you:

  • develop stronger essay topics
  • increase the significance and depth of your presentation
  • improve the support for and development of your ideas
  • better organize your material
  • enhance the effectiveness of your style

In addition, they will help you edit your work for clarity, coherence, precision and correctness. Students with APA citation questions are referred to the Loyola/Notre Dame Library website and to the online tutorial for APA and MLA guidelines.

Bring a hard copy of your assignment and any drafts or preliminary writing you have done, also in a hard copy.

Please note: it is always best to call ahead to make sure a tutor is available. Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are strongly encouraged. Tutoring sessions are limited to 45-50 minutes.
