The University regulation is clear that all work submitted for assessment must be the unaided work of an individual student, therefore ASK cannot help you to write your assignment. However, taking part in ASK sessions will help you to develop your writing skills and tackle any study-related issues. Please also note that ASK is unable to proofread your work.
