Trinity College Writing Centre

How it Works

All tutoring is one-on-one, confidential, and free of charge. The Writing Centre provides instruction in, and objective criticism of, your written course assignments in any discipline.

The staff won't write your paper for you, or tell you what to say. But they can advise on such matters as focus, organization, argumentation, documentation, grammar, and style. Their aim is to help you improve your ability to write clearly, coherently, logically and persuasively. They will work with you on any kind of writing assignment (essays, book reviews, reports, including science reports) at any stage of development, from conceptualization to final draft.
