The Writing Center works collaboratively with undergraduate and graduate students to help them develop and craft their writing. 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. Tutors can help writers:
- Understand assignments
- Generate ideas
- Develop a focus
- Organize and plan essays
- Develop ideas
- Revise drafts
- Improve proofreading and editing skills
- Prepare for the WPST
The Writing Center tutors do not proofread papers. Instead, tutors work with each student to develop his/her editing skills.
