Writing Studio

While a writing tutor would be happy to meet with you any time during the regular hours of the Division of Student Success, the Writing Studio also offers a variety of online writing resources, including online tutoring, for students who cannot make it in for a one-on-one appointment.

Housed in the Division of Student Success and staffed by screened and trained undergraduates, the Maryville University Writing Studio can help students to become better writers in any subject or major. Writing tutors offer individualized learning sessions for specific projects or help in general, in all aspects of writing: generating ideas and planning a draft, citing sources and avoiding plagiarism, and revising for coherence, concision, and clarity. Students may visit on their own or on the recommendation of an instructor. The Writing Studio is also a speaking center, offering tutorials for in-class presentations or for ESL students in conversational English.
