The School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies offers a one-on-one writing center for students enrolled in all SHPRS classes, particularly philosophy. The SHPRS writing studio is run by SHPRS faculty and philosophy students who are dedicated to helping students at any step in the writing process. Each student is given specialized instruction and guidance that they can carry with them even after they have left the studio. The writing tutor also provides assistance to students who are enrolled in logic classes.

The writing tutor can help you: 

  • Plan an upcoming paper
  • Understand the conventions of writing, especially those of philosophy
  • Improve your writing by providing review of and feedback on a current paper
  • Utilize proper documentation and citations
  • Understand the logical structure of a paper
  • Grasp the basics of formal and informal logic
  • Become a better writer

Meet the SHPRS Writing Tutor

My name is Ashwin Ravi, and I am a junior pursuing concurrent degrees in Economics and Philosophy. My favorite areas of philosophy are metaphysics and logic, dealing with questions such as philosophy of time and ontology. I also currently work on the Applied Philosophy Blog website. In my spare time I like to read history and play video games.
