The Writing Studio at MICA offers in-person and online one-on-one tutoring sessions, campus-wide and in-class workshops, and instructional resources designed to bolster the written and verbal communication skills of MICA students.
The Writing Studio provides services in two major categories: the Resource Library and Tutor Support.
What to Expect In a Tutoring Session
Our experienced group of professional tutors will engage students in conversation, to determine what the students wish to accomplish. Generally, tutors will first tackle "global issues" such as a paper's overarching argument, before counseling students on "local issues" such as sentence structure. Typically, sessions are designed to last 50 minutes.
Before You Arrive
Students should arrive at the Writing Studio with a solid grasp of the assignment. It's a good idea to bring related materials, such as an assignment sheet and course texts. Tutors will not edit or proofread an essay but can offer students strategies for completing those tasks on their own.
