The Writing Lab is located in the Teaching & Learning Center on the Second Floor, East Wing of the Air University MSFRIC Building (Building 1405).
What kind of service does the Writing Lab offer?
The Writing Lab offers 45-minute one-on-one tutoring sessions to all Air University (AU) students. Students are limited to one session per week. Additionally, the Writing Lab provides academic lessons, workshops, and small group tutoring services on written, verbal, and visual communication skills.
How do I schedule a tutoring session?
Make an appointment with a faculty tutor or the Lead Writing Specialist through our online Tutoring Request form. You must have a military or AU email address to schedule an appointment. For assistance, please call (334) 953-5233.
How do I prepare for a tutoring session?
Please check your appointment confirmation email for specific instructions about sending your assignment to your tutor in advance. If no specific instructions are provided, bring your writing assignment instructions and rubric, relevant notes and readings, and a hardcopy (or digital copy) of your assignment draft (if applicable).
We will NOT edit or proofread your assignment. However, in reviewing the assignment, the tutor will help you learn how to identify patterns of error and strategies for fixing them. You will not leave with a perfect paper. Rather, the goal of the tutoring session is to help you become a more effective and confident writer over the long term.
What other resources are available?
Our online writing resources provide convenient 24/7 access to online and print materials, including reference materials, that support academic writing and research, from understanding a prompt to revising a final draft.
Where can students get additional writing support?
The Writing Lab manages a collection of public online writing resources through the Air Force Public Information Management System (AFPIMS). These materials serve Airmen worldwide and the general public. Students can also schedule tutoring appointments with Writing Lab tutors who can assist them using the Tutoring Request link.
