Schedule a Consultation AppointmentAbout CTW Consultations

CTW’s mission is to help you become a better writer. In one-on-one consultations, we provide feedback on rhetoric, grammar, and formatting. We also help you get started on your assignments, brainstorm ideas, set up a writing schedule, and improve the organization and clarity of your papers.


Becoming a better writer takes time. Students are invited to email us at for answers to quick questions. For most class assignments, however, we ask that you make a consultation appointment to discuss your paper in depth.

Scheduling Consultations

One-on-one consultations with CTW staff are now available for an hourly fee. These consultations provide personal feedback on your writing for course papers, and personal answers to your specific questions about your writing. To meet with a CTW consultant, schedule an appointment using our online form. Hourly rates are listed on the appointment scheduling form.  

1. Schedule an appointment in advance.

2. Arrive ten minutes before your appointment time to pay by credit or debit card before your appointment begins.

Consultations are available with CTW Program Coordinator Tyler Detrick. If none of the available times work for you, or if you have any questions about scheduling an appointment, please email for more information.

We request that you pay for your scheduled appointment before the consultation begins, so please come to the CTW main office (Room L-1 in the Andreas Center of the library) ten minutes before your appointment time. A credit or debit card is required.

Masters-level students may sign up for one hour per week. Additional hours per week are allowed at the discretion of the CTW Director on a case-by-case basis. Plan your semester in advance so that you can take advantage of this service! Also remember that it is OK to come in with a paper that is not completely finished. Getting others' feedback in the middle of the writing process can help you write more effectively.

We are available to work with you on all aspects of your writing, including grammar, punctuation, and formatting, but if you would prefer to use an editor, please see the description of our editor referral service.
