|THE WRITING CENTER|
While the Writing Center is not a proofreading service, we can help you with writing for any class by offering one-on-one tutoring sessions. During these sessions, tutors can help you understand writing or reading assignments, start the writing process, revise a draft in progress, or apply a teacher’s comments to subsequent assignments.
Tutors can identify areas of weakness, such as writing topic sentences, organizing paragraphs, using possessive and passive voice, using transitional techniques, and reaching effective conclusions.
The Writing Center does not guarantee a grade to any visiting student-writer, and therefore, tutors will not estimate what grade the paper should receive.
*Please check SCHOLAR regularly for updated hours of operation.
You will find the WC in the Academic Resource Center, which is located in Sheffield Thompson 201.
