Yes!

We have experienced tutoring students with learning differences, linguistic challenges, and neurodiverse needs. Please note that tutors will not be privy to any accommodations arrangements made with the college and it is up to the student to disclose what causes their writing difficulties. Tutors treat the relationship with tutees as confidential and will not share this information with anyone else.

Set up an appointment here

Yes!

We can help you at any stage in the writing process including the planning stages before you start writing. Please be aware that there is no guarantee that an assignment will be completed by the end of a tutoring session, especially if you begin the process at the start of the session.

Not yet.

We are working on a draft review submission process that is online-only, but until that is in place, one-on-one tutoring is the way to go.

Set up an appointment here

Yes.

You can make a special request to meet with the Writing Center Director which will be contingent upon availability.

Set up an appointment here

Nope.

Tutors need sufficient time to review your work, so please schedule an appointment in advance of a deadline. Consider a request made within anything less than a 24-hour window to be difficult to coordinate.

Same-day services are not offered unless a Learning Commons drop-in session is scheduled. (Such as Study Tables)

Student tutors do not stand in place of spelling and grammar checking applications—the tutors will focus more so on feedback regarding construction than on proofreading a paper.

Do not blame a tutor if common spelling and grammar errors remain in a draft. It is the responsibility of the student to review their work and make suggested changes before submitting the final work for an assignment.

Tuesday & Thursday Study Tables

Join your fellow students on Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 2pm in the Learning Commons. No appointment necessary, just show up.

Friday Help

Stop by the Learning Commons on Fridays from 10am to 3pm or check-in via Discord.

Writing Center services include tutoring, instruction, guided research, and the review of materials in order to strengthen writing abilities.

Please use our space, services, and programming to enhance your academic skills and produce your best-written work.
