The Writing Center serves students from all disciplines and at all levels of proficiency.
Our peer tutors can help your students at each step of the writing process. This help may
include understanding assignments, setting research and writing goals, brainstorming
and developing controlling ideas, revising drafts for clarity and complexity, and providing
editing strategies and practice. The Writing Center tutors will not proofread papers for students. Instead, tutors will help students learn to recognize their sentence-level errors,
to locate them in the context of their own writing, and to correct them. Since writing
growth is developmental, students’ essays may not demonstrate marked improvement immediately. However, with continued tutoring and classroom instruction, students can and will become competent academic writers.
