A1: Absolutely yes! Our tutors would be happy to help you brainstorm ideas for an assignment. When you
come for the consultation session, bring the assignment instructions, along with any reading list,
as well as any notes that you might have made in preparation for the assignment.
A2: We do not proofread or edit writers’ work because this would make us co-authors. Nevertheless, we
are happy to highlight language issues in your writing, and advise you on how to improve your language
usage with the aim of you becoming a better proofreader of your own work.
A3: No. Writers of all levels of ability write to be read, and SWCP tutors are keen to read and give
feedback from a reader’s perspective on anyone’s writing.
A4: Read the tutor bios on the SWCP website to learn about our tutors. The website shows tutors from
three different universities, but you can only sign up for a session with tutors at your own university.
Tutors are trained to give feedback on writing from any discipline. If your writing is on an advanced
disciplinary topic, you may want to choose a tutor from a disciplinary background similar to yours.
A5: Yes, the SWCP is completely free.
