Writing Center


Services Provided
The Writing Center provides individualized instruction to students completing writing assignments in any course and at any stage of the writing process, from generating or organizing ideas to drafting, revising, or editing.

We are located in the Student Success Center- Collins Building room 214.
 
The Writing Center provides FREE face-to-face peer tutoring for ANY writing assignment.
 
OUR TUTORS CAN HELP YOU
· understand prompts

We can…
  • help writers approach writing tasks as a multi-stage process.
  • work with the writer to help identify and correct patterns of error.
  • assist writers in developing their proofreading and editing skills.
  • act as an "audience" and "sounding board" for writers.

We cannot...
  • write papers (or portions of papers) for students.
  • edit or proofread papers for students.
  • be as helpful at the last minute as with ample time prior to due dates.
