Academic Writing Support Office

What is the Academic Writing Support Office? This is a service which helps undergraduates here in the English Department with term papers, micro essays, book reviews, etc. In other words, the practical writing tasks in their classes.


*Writing Support will be taking a break until July 18*

In the meantime, students can come for a consultation with Teresa Teklic​ every Thursday between 12–2 pm in KG IV, Room 4005.

KG IV, Room 4005, just inside the back doors (above the stream).

You are welcome to drop by:

  • empty handed to talk about your ideas, or lack of them.
  • with a rough idea of your structure to talk through.
  • with a draft version which you are still working on, but want initial feedback.
  • for a one-off consultation.
  • for regular visits over months to accompany your entire writing process.


The service is independent of departmental teaching staff!

This is not a proof-reading service and texts will only be read with the student!


Opening times


Summer semester 2017:

Tuesdays: July 18 and 25, August 1 and 8
2 to 5 pm


The service is offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so you are advised to book an appointment here.

To make an appointment, please send an email with two preferred dates/times. Appointments will be finalized after July 9 and I will then be in touch with you to confirm your appointment.

Please clarify how much time you'll need in your email:

  • 45–60 minutes: 'structure discussion', 'towards a clearer thesis statement', 'identifying a problem in your text and finding a solution', 'providing evidence', 'interpretation support', or maybe you just want to come for some general feedback or to share your ideas.
  • 10 minutes: specific citation questions.


Please feel free to drop by, with or without an appointment. An appointment will guarantee you a space.

You are welcome to use the free service more than once!


You are also welcome to email your academic writing questions to me, however small: contact me
