Will a writing specialist or tutor proofread my paper?

Our writing specialists and tutors will offer guidance, valuable feedback, and resources to you in a collaborative and non-judgmental way. We help you become editors of your own writing, but we cannot proofread or write your paper for you.

How can I get my paper reviewed when the Learning Commons is closed?

Use SMARTHINKING.
