How does the Writing Center help?

 

We help students with course assignments, personal statements, resumes -- you name it. All of us benefit from individual attention to our writing, whether we are getting started or adding finishing touches. We help with writer's block, assignment prompts, brainstorming, organization, making connections with readings, word choice, and sentence revision.

 

Getting started:

 

Schedule a time that is convenient. Appointments are 45 minutes. We are in Grant Hall 105 (next to Douglas and Lincoln), open Monday through Friday. When you come, let the desk person know your name. Your tutor will meet you and you will be on track for becoming a better writer.


What can expect when I come? 

 

You and the tutor will begin by choosing priorities. You can expect tutors to treat your questions with care and respect. Tutors provide options, resources, and support for making improvements. Of course, the final responsibility for revising assignments remains with you.

Tips and Tricks:

  • You can make more progress by coming frequently. Tutors have the same schedule every week, which makes it easy to reschedule with  the same tutor.
  • If our appointments are full, please use the waiting list feature. Click on the clock on the upper left corner of the scheduler and you will get a text or email when someone cancels.
  • You are also encouraged to drop in. Although we cannot guarantee a last minute appointment, if a tutor is available, we will help.
  • We offer online tutoring. When you make an appointment, click "Yes -- meet online." At the time of the appointment you will upload your paper and you and the tutor will be able to chat or talk on the phone. If it is your first session, we recommend working face to face before going online.
  • You can select tutors by general subject, if you wish, by going to the top of the scheduler and clicking the drop down menu called "limit to."
