Academic Writing Center (AWC)

Academic Writing Center allows students to meet in a session with the AWC Staff for one-on-one help. Our sessions facilitate immediate dialogue that can guide and help both the student writer & the paper.

Sessions are:

  1. 30- or 60-minute sessions
  2. One-on-one between AWC tutor and student
  3. In the Library 

How to Schedule an Session?

  1. To book your session use your AUIB email and click here to fill out the information. You can book either a 30- or 60-minute session.
  2. After booking, please email a typed copy of your writing to [email protected] or bring your writing with you to the session.
  3. Please use the Microsoft Bookings link sent to your email to get information about when and where to meet your AWC tutor. 
  4. Tutors will go over the writing piece and guide you in corrections you need to make at the meeting.   

No-Shows: Please be considerate of our services and other students by canceling or rescheduling your session at least 12 hours in advance, using the link above. Also, being more than 15 minutes late without notification is considered a no-show, and the session is forfeited to other students.

Services We DON’T Provide

  1. We will not fix the paper for you but guide you on how you can fix it yourself! While the AWC Coordinator will help you recognize patterns of grammatical, organizational, content or punctuation errors, it is the student’s responsibility to use the Coordinator’s feedback in the revision and proofreading process.
  2. Writing students’ papers for them.
  3.  Predicting or re-evaluating assignment grades → We don’t know who your teachers are or how they grade!
  4. Reviewing exams or assignments other than writing. This is not a general tutoring service.
