Peer Tutoring

The tutors of the writing lab offer writing consultations to support students in writing academic papers.

Our tutors support students in structuring and writing their academic papers by helping them understand and independently manage their writing processes. The goal of tutoring is to provide guidance for self-help so that students could improve their writing skills and produce academic papers on their own.

What to expect during a consultation?

During individual and group consultations, our tutors will help you practice various writing techniques. They can help you brainstorm for the topic or help with different aspects related to searching and reviewing the literature. Our tutors can work with you on reading strategies, writing project planning, and time management.

How to book an appointment

You can schedule an individual tutoring appointment by logging into our open access Moodle room "Schreibwerkstatt Peer Schreibberatung.” There you will find a list of available time-slots and further information about tutoring services, peer tutors, and practice materials.

An open writing café is held on Mondays and Thursdays in Emil-Figge-Str. 61 (Room 201), where students are supervised by peer tutors while working on their projects between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. No appointment bookings are necessary for this event; students can come and go spontaneously at any time. Every Friday from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. there is an online writing meeting via Zoom. The corresponding link can be found in the above-mentioned Moodle room of the Peer Writing Consultation.
