We asked students how getting feedback during the process of working on a paper helped them. Listen to what they had to say.


The Judith Anderson Herbert Writing Center serves student writers in all disciplines of the UT academic community by offering free and individualized help throughout the writing process. Trained tutors read student writing and provide feedback in one-to-one conversations. Our goal is to help students think about and improve their written work from the brainstorming stage to final revisions.


All tutoring schedules are open for appointments

In-person, online (video-based) and email appointments are available.
