Weekly tutoring program

Regular Weekly Meetings (Enrollment Program)

Click here to register for the 8-week summer session (June 12 - August 4).

Students who enroll in this program reserve a regular weekly time to work with one of our staff. Sessions can be once a week for 50 minutes or twice a week for 25 minutes. All meetings are held at in the Writing Center, 110 English Philosophy Building, from Monday to Thursday between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm. Our staff can help you talk through, organize and express your ideas, on paper and in multimodal projects. We teach strategies to tackle any writing or composition challenge. Students can bring any kind of writing project or assignment and can get help at all stages of the writing process, from brainstorming to final polishing. 

Information for enrolled students

Enrolling means that you have reserved a time to meet each week with the same instructor.  You are expected attend every session whether or not you are working on a piece of writing.  When you don’t have writing to bring, we'll still be able to help you with ideas for assignments, research strategies, and general writing skills.  Please plan to attend all your weekly sessions!  This is our most popular program and we have a long waiting list. If you find that you cannot commit to a meeting every week, or become too busy to keep this obligation, please cancel your enrollment to make your spot available for another student.

We have the following policies:

  • If you need to miss a session, you MUST e-mail the writing center at writing-center@uiowa.edu to let us know.
  • If you cancel more than three sessions during the semester, we will offer your time to another student.
  • If you are learning English as a second language you must have completed all required ESL courses to be eligible for Writing Center services and this program.
  • If you are offered a regular weekly meeting you should NOT also make appointments using our online schedule. Please leave these free for students who do not have a spot in our regular weekly program.
