LATS Virtual Support

LATS offers virtual academic support in a wide range of disciplines, including the six college writing programs, AWP courses, and foreign languages. LATS also offers tutoring sessions for upper-division courses and other writing projects, such as personal statements for scholarships, graduate school, and internships. Individual tutoring and workshops are provided by knowledgeable, well-trained tutors and facilitators who specialize in their respective college writing program, academic disciplines, and various forms of writing. Tutors are available to provide 1-on-1 support to you during your entire writing process. LATS programs (tutoring and workshops) run during weeks 2-10 and will only take place virtually (via WC Online & Zoom) during this time.
