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

We’re open online in Summer!

The following video-based services are available:

  • Undergraduate Student Writing Help

For all UT undergraduates, including students whose first language is not English, who are writing in any course/any subject.

  • Graduate Student Writing Help

For all UT graduate students, including students whose first language is not English, who are writing in any course/any subject or writing a thesis or dissertation.

  • Application Materials Help

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.
