The following is a brief description that explains what students can expect when they visit the Writing Center. Instructors are encouraged to copy it into their syllabus for this semester.

Visit the Writing Center! Peer tutors can help at any point in your writing process, from brainstorming to revising. Although peer tutors are trained to identify and explain patterns of errors to students, tutors do not write, edit, or grade papers. The peer tutors at the Writing Center can be most helpful if you do the following:

  • Formulate: come prepared to the session with specific writing issues to discuss
  • Focus: be engaged in the session by playing an active role in discussing your paper with the tutor
  • Follow through: take notes during the session and make changes afterward
