Writing Center – Pilot HS20/FS21


One-to-one consultations with a writing expert

Are you uncertain about your English grammar and syntax? Does your text lack clear structure? Have you rewritten your text a million times and now you need someone else to tell you what still needs improving? Does your text “sound German” or maybe “not quite English”?

We are running a 1-year pilot project for a Writing Center, where ETH/UZH students and staff at all levels can get feedback on and help with their writing. Experienced language lecturers are offering 45-minute one-to-one consultations where you can get personalized feedback on your text and discuss issues with your writing.

How does it work?

  1. Choose a time/date on Doodle.
  2. Your writing expert will confirm the date and send you a Zoom link. Your session will take place online as long as COVID restrictions apply. Eventually, we hope to offer a choice of online and in-person consultations.
  3. How to prepare: In order for the meeting to be efficient and to help us meet your personal needs, you should have ready a piece of your writing, plus specific questions for discussion. Please note that as our resources for this pilot are limited, our experts cannot proofread, edit, or assess your text in advance.
  4. Because this is a pilot, and in order to ensure the continuation of the project, we need your feedback. We will use a few minutes at the end of the session to gather your feedback.
