The Writing Center
Basic Services and Goals
The Writing Center, under the direction of the English Department, assists students in improving their reading and writing skills in all subject areas. Our tutors do this by providing students with meaningful feedback and engaging them in discussion aimed at helping the students fulfill their potential through a better understanding of course requirements, assignments and readings.
Primary Modes of Tutoring
To meet these goals, we offer two primary modes of tutoring.
Students with regularly scheduled appointments meet for one 45-minute session per week with a designated tutor.
During designated drop-in hours, students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis.
Other Services Offered
- Conversation groups for ESL students
- Workshops in writing fundamentals, during which the focus is on grammar, punctuation, formatting and the like
