Hume Center for Writing and Speaking

The Hume Center for Writing and Speaking works with all Stanford students to help them develop rich and varied abilities in every aspect of writing and oral communication. In free individual sessions, Hume tutors help students get started on assignments; address and overcome writer's block or performance anxiety; learn strategies for revising, editing, and proofreading; and understand academic conventions in their fields. Whether students are working on a written or oral project for a course or applying for a grant or job, the Hume Center's writing or speaking tutors can help them develop effective strategies and sharpen skills to improve their written or oral communication.
