Writing tutors are available to help grad students improve English writing mechanics, (e.g., paragraph transitions, subject-verb agreement, or verb tense.) They can also help with any stage of the writing process, from initial brainstorming, to major structural revisions, to putting the finishing touches on a final draft. When a tutor meets with you, they will discuss your draft document and make general suggestions for improvement. To have a successful experience with a tutor, you need to readily accept feedback, study and apply what tutor teaches you, and dedicate the time necessary to improve the next draft of your document. The MU Writing Tutors do not offer editing services.
First, check out Fridays @ the Library, a series of live and online seminars. See also this dedicated Library page for graduate students. The MU Libraries also offer free online guides for conducting a literature review and citation style and software.
The Writer’s Room: Provides writing resources for abstracts, outlines, literature reviews, theses and dissertations, journal articles, scholarly presentations, posters and teaching the public about research findings. Mizzou students can self-enroll or contact the Graduate Student Association to learn more.
