The Writing Center provides a friendly and supportive environment for student writers at all levels of ability.


  • 30-minute tutorials.
  • Walk-ins, appointments, and referrals welcome.
  • Help available for all types of writing projects.
  • Tutors assist writers at every stage of the writing process: brainstorming, constructing a thesis, organizing, drafting, revising, and editing.
  • Tutors work with writers on a variety of needs: grammar and mechanics, documentation, tone, transitions, diction, etc.


Tutors work in a partnership with students to improve their written work and general writing skills. Still, there are some things we will not do:

  • We will not write essays or parts of essays for students.
  • We will not provide "proofreading" services.
  • We will not speculate on grades.

Tutorial Reports:

Unless a student requests otherwise, brief, factual reports will be sent by e-mail to the student's instructor.

How We Can Better Serve You:

Students should bring the following materials to tutorials:

  • the assignment sheet
  • class notes on the assignment
  • the class syllabus
