Scientific Writing Lab: Individual Tutoring Service - Digitales Semester
 
Are you having trouble writing a document or preparing a presentation in English? The Tutoring Service can help! Whether it is an essay for a course you are taking, a thesis you are writing, a test for which you are preparing, or a presentation you will be giving, I can offer suggestions on a number of levels. This is not a course in the traditional sense, as we never meet together as a class at regular meeting times. Rather, the purpose here is for you to obtain individualized advice on your language use (e.g., clarity and coherence) and style (e.g., appropriate academic vocabulary, tone of voice when speaking). 
After you enroll, please go to my Moodle site for the Service (password = tutoring). There, you will find information on how to proceed and arrange a minimum of two thirty-minute appointments for us to meet online and discuss your writing/presenting issues. If you have a special need to meet outside the times listed below, we can discuss possible alternatives.
