Who goes to the SACC?

Any member of the university community who wishes to have good feedback on a piece of their writing. We understand that you may not have a draft ready. We can also help you with your ideas for your article or paper. 

What will a consultation do for me?

A consultation will help you to see the areas of your writing that may not be communicating as effectively as you would like them to. You are welcome to ask for feedback on content, meaning, and readability. Have a journal article idea and need someone to bounce ideas off ? A consultation is a place for you to work with a tutor to come up with ideas or outlines for articles.  

What is a writing consultation like?

Questions, questions, questions! A consultation is you with a tutor discussing your work through a series of questions and answers. Come with your questions ready for the tutor and get the most out of your experience.

What do I need to take with me to a consultation?

We work with writers during any stage of their writing process. In other words, bring your journal description, your assignment instructions, your ideas, questions, notes, and brainstorms. If you have a draft, print it and bring it with you, or bring your laptop. We cannot accommodate flash drives.

Will the tutors correct  grammar mistakes on my paper?

No. If you ask, tutors will point out areas on your paper where you have made grammar or syntax mistakes; however, they will not correct the areas. They will help you find resources to help you understand your grammatical errors so that you can continue to improve your writing.

Will the SACC translate my paper into English?

No, we're not a translation agency.  We help you improve writing skills.

Can SACC help me with my CV/resume?

Absolutely. You might also like to sign up for a CV/resume and cover letter workshop.
