One-to-one help with writing assignments is available in the IIT Writing Center, which provides assistance with assignments in engineering, science, and technical communication courses as well as courses in the humanities (literature, history, art & architecture history, philosophy) and social sciences.
One-on-one instruction focuses on the specific needs of the individual student. Typically, a student takes a project or paper assignment to the Writing Center, where a tutor assists with the writing process:
- by helping to interpret the goals and requirements of the assignment
- by guiding the processes of information gathering, analyzing, evaluating, synthesizing, organizing, and documenting
- by helping to address "local" issues such as grammar, punctuation, spelling, conventions of typing, etc.
The IIT Writing Center generally opens for the second week of each Spring and Fall semester; it closes sometime during Finals Week.
