Writing Center

Book a one-to-one consultation 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 hundred times and now you need a writing expert’s help? Does your text “sound German” or maybe “not quite English”? Is your text sensitive and you need help formulating it?


The Writing Center is open to all ETH and UZH staff and students. An experienced language expert will work with you on up to 5 pages of your text for 45 minutes, providing you with personalized feedback and answering any questions you may have.

How does it work?

  1. Choose a time/date on Doodle.
  2. A writing expert will confirm the date and send you a Zoom link or a location (currently we are offering only online consultations due to COVID restrictions)
  3. How to prepare: In order for the meeting to be efficient, and to help us meet your specific needs, you should have ready a piece of your writing, plus specific questions for discussion. Please note that as our resources are limited, our experts cannot proofread, edit, or assess your text in advance.
