Information for Students
The Writing Center’s professional tutors are eager to help students in any course, regardless of their level of experience, expertise or confidence as writers. We help writers in many subjects, including Biology, Criminal Justice, Economics, English, History, Mathematics, Psychology, Education, Dental Hygiene, Medical Assistant, to name a few. In addition, we assist with resumes, college application essays, or letters.

In tutorial sessions, tutors talk with students about their writing; we ask questions that help writers see their texts through the audience’s eyes and encourage them to explore options for drafting and revising their texts. Students often seek help with thesis statements, organization, development, citation of sources, development of proofreading strategies, and other concerns.

Writing Center tutors work by appointment with students individually or in small groups (tutors facilitate these group sessions of 2-3 students). To schedule appointments, students can come to L-012 or call (778-5632).

Limited online tutorial feedback is offered for students who are enrolled exclusively in online courses or for students who cannot come to the Writing Center during our business hours.
