Will my paper be proofread?
No but... We expect you to come to your appointment or include with online information your goals for the session. We want the session to focus on your goals.
However, we also want to teach you to become a self-editor, so we will also help you learn more about grammar, organization, research, editing, revising, and proofreading.
If my paper is reviewed in ARC, does that mean it does not need to be reviewed for plagiarism?
No, writing tutors focus appointments on your goals and seek to assist you with organization, support, and grammar in both online and face to face appointments. Writing tutors may or may not know your discipline; however, they are gifted in helping students become better writers.
