The Writing Center

Need writing assistance? Check out the Writing Center! There are two convenient locations in Memorial Hall and in Morris Library. Even if you are confident in your writing skills, it is helpful to have a second (and third) set of eyes to look over your essay, cover letter, etc. Don’t know where to start? Bring your rubric and your ideas with you to your appointment. They also have workshops available.

Need help with your presentation or public speaking skills? The Writing Center has Oral Communication Consultants. They are undergraduate students that have excelled in their Oral Communication courses at UD and are extensively trained in providing high quality peer-to-peer tutoring in a range of areas including eye contact, vocal projection/style, outlining, visual aids, speech anxiety techniques, and more! The Oral Communication Studio is set up with technology to help record and review rehearsals, as well as refine visual aids.

For more information about Writing Center services and to schedule an appointment, visit their website.

Drop-in Tutoring and More

Drop-in tutoring provided by the Office of Academic Enrichment begins today! Take advantage of all the free* academic assistance offered on campus before you are struggling in a course. Even if you expect to do well, why not use tutoring services to make sure you do your best?

In addition to drop-in tutoring, OAE has workshops both in-person and online, including topics such as time management, reading strategies, and choosing a major.

OAE also provides the following services:

  • Academic Intakes — Don’t know what kind of academic assistance you need? Meet with an OAE staff member to assess whether you need some help with note-taking, study skills, etc., or a referral to another office on campus.
  • Study Groups — You can request a free tutor for your study group (or 5-15 people).
  • Individual Tutoring — If you would like an individual tutor, you can find one on OAE’s database. This service is not free unless you are part of certain programs that waive these fees.
  • PASS Program — This is a free service offered for specific courses to supplement instruction without the instructor.

You can find additional academic resources on the OAE website including links for the ISE lab and the Writing Center.

*Free services on campus aren’t actually free. You are already paying for them with your student fees. So use what you’ve paid for!

Finals Week: Drop-in tutoring, study spaces, advising

We want to wish you well on your finals this week!

If you’d like to utilize OAE’s free drop-in tutoring, here is this week’s drop-in schedule. It is located at 148-150 S College Ave (the same building we’re in).

Did you know you can use the tutoring space for individual studying outside of tutoring hours? Check in at the front desk like you would for tutoring. The space is available this week and next from around 8 AM-11 AM on Thurs, Fri, Tues, and Wed and from around 2 PM-5 PM Friday.

If you have any concerns you would like to discuss with a UST advisor before leaving for summer break, we have our regular drop-in hours all this week and next. You can also schedule an appointment with your advisor through BHSC. We will be available for appointments and via email during the summer as well.
