Having trouble with academic writing? Get help from the writing coaches! SUSS is launching a writing support service to undergraduate students who might need help with their written assignments such as TMAs.
These specially trained writing coaches will provide students with targeted feedback during one-on-one sessions. By going through your writing assignment, our writing coaches can help students to better understand the areas in writing that need improvement, as well as learn the key techniques involved in different parts of the writing process.
The SUSS Writing Support Service aims to provide part-time and full-time undergraduate students with individualised one-on-one coaching on academic writing by SUSS postgraduate students trained in TESOL/English language teaching.
Coaching will cover the following aspects:
For the coaching session to be productive, you need to upload assignment instructions, previously marked assignments or a small portion of the draft for a new assignment before the session. You are reminded to come prepared. If you attend without any uploaded materials, you may be allocated some time during the session to write for a practice question.
Writing coaches will NOT
The coaching session only covers linguistics/writing aspects and will not touch subject matter in specific disciplines.
Booking for slots in the July 2019 semester will open in mid-July.
Please note that writing coaches need some time before the coaching session to go through the documents – such as assignment instructions, previously marked assignments or a small portion of the draft for an assignment to be submitted. Therefore, students who choose a walk-in consultation should not expect to get as detailed feedback and specific guidance from the coach as those who make an appointment and send their documents to their assigned coaches in advance.
Please refer to the video below.
If you can’t attend your reserved time-slot, please login to the booking system and cancel the time-slot BEFORE the start of the session. This will allow other students a chance to take the slot.
Please take note that if you fail to cancel your scheduled time-slot, it will be recorded as “no-show” in the system. A student with a record of two “no-shows” or more will not be given priority for future booking or request for a particular time-slot.
