Writing Advisor

The GSA Writing Advisor assists graduate students with any writing project/assignment across all curricula. You do not need completed work, or even any work completed at all, to make an appointment. The Writing Advisor can help at any stage in the writing process.

Currently, the Writing Advisor is available for appointments at the following times:

Tuesday and Wednesday: 9am-4pm

Thursday: 11am-4pm


Please schedule your appointment through the Writing Advisor booking calendar. Once you log-in, select the time you would like to reserve and fill out the subsequent page.


This site may have some accessibility issues. If you have any, please email us to schedule an appointment.

If you have additional questions, email with ATTN: Writing Advisor in the subject line.


No-Show Policy

To ensure office availability and fairness in scheduling opportunities for all students, any graduate student who does not upload their paper or arrive for an appointment by their scheduled time twice in one semester will have their ability to schedule appointments revoked for the rest of the semester.



Our Writing Advisor Zach Tucker is a Master’s student in the History department. He has tutored students at UMBC for three years and has experience writing for publication, conferences, professional development, and academia in a variety of styles as well as disciplines.
