OWL Tutors

OWL tutors are UW branch campus students who have received an "A" in English 102, have been recommended by their instructors, and have undergone extensive tutor training.

The OWL tutors are happy to share their insight into writing with you and will try to formulate a thorough and useful response to your draft. Please note, however, that they are not magicians, nor do they know absolutely everything about writing. The OWL can, perhaps, best be viewed as a way to get a very good peer response to your writing.
