- What kind of help will tutors provide?
Tutors can help you with everything from brainstorming ideas and thesis development to improving grammar and punctuation. They do not edit papers but rather work with you to meet the objectives of your assignment.
- Who does the Writing Center serve?
Everyone! All subjects and all levels (first-year students to graduate students).
- What should I bring with me to a tutoring session?
Bring a hardcopy of whatever progress you’ve made on your paper (a full draft, a partial draft, an outline, some ideas you’ve written down, etc.). Also, please bring any handouts the professor has provided that explain the requirements of the assignment.
- How soon will I see a tutor?
It depends on availability. It could be as early as that day or a day or two later. If there is very high demand for tutoring, however, it may take longer and so we strongly encourage you to plan ahead.
- How long are tutoring sessions?
On average, sessions will run between 45-50 minutes.
- Who are the Writing Center tutors?
They are upper-level undergraduate students who were able to apply for a Writing Center Scholarship because of their high GPA’s and outstanding academic performance. They come from a variety of disciplines, including English, Communication, Creative Writing, Sociology, Philosophy, Psychology, Print Journalism, and Advertising. All Writing Center tutors receive extensive training.
