Writing Support

General Writing Help

The Judith Anderson Herbert Writing Center serves student writers in all disciplines of the UT academic community by offering free, individualized help throughout the writing process. Trained tutors read and discuss student writing in one-to-one conversations and offer constructive feedback. We teach students how to think about their written work from the brainstorming stage to final revisions.

For information about our services, see our Home page.

 

Support for First-Year Composition (FYC)

UT requires all first-year students take two semesters of FYC courses. See this page on UT’s FYC program to learn more.

English 103 & 104

English 103 and 104 are 1-credit electives (S/NC grading) intended to help students succeed in their first-year composition courses (English 101, 102, 118, 131, 132, 198, 290, or 298). Students work one-to-one with tutors and independently to improve their writing skills. For more information, see English 103 & 104.

Writing Workshops

We periodically offer writing workshops for undergraduate students. Previous topics have ranged from “Qualitative Research Questions” to “Annotated Bibliographies” to “Integrating Sources” and more. Inquire at writingcenter@utk.edu for information about upcoming workshops.
