Writing Center

If You Write, You Belong Here

Fall 2021 Tutoring Begins September 7

All tutoring is conducted in an online format through StanTutor 

Location: Library 221 See Map

The Writing Center works collaboratively with undergraduates and graduate students to help them develop and craft their writing. Tutors help writers approach their writing assignments and develop their own writing process. Usually, tutors first help writers address larger issues, such as focus, organization, and development; then, tutors assist writers with sentence-level issues, such as grammar, punctuation, and diction.
