Tutoring Options: The Writing Center
The Writing and Communication Center (Room 12-132, 3-3090) is available to assist all members of the MIT community (undergraduate and graduate students, staff and faculty members, and spouses of all the above) with all aspects of writing and oral presentations.
You can go the Writing Center with just a paper assignment for help in developing your ideas. You can go with your first draft for help toward revision. You can bring your final draft for last-minute suggestions before you turn in the paper.
Professional writing consultants can provide feedback and guidance on a wide range of topics such as writing papers for courses, writing theses, writing articles for publication, writing all types of technical communication, writing application essays and resumes, practicing oral presentations and pronunciation, overcoming writers' block, and taking essay exams. The Center also has ESL experts who provide specialized help to those for whom English is a second language.
All the Center's services are free. Go to the Center's web site to schedule an appointment.
