Writing Tutoring

Writing Tutors are available for help during the week in the Academic Success Center. Tutors offer friendly, constructive assistance with papers of any type and at any stage of the writing process.

Tutors are trained and prepared to discuss organization, give feedback on clarity and suggest ideas for revision. They are trained in a one semester, four-unit course taught each fall. References for MLA and APA styles are available and tutors can assist with in-text citations and with listing references for research papers.

There are computers available to students with word processors and a printer for student use.

In order to have a successful meeting, a student should come prepared by bringing in the writing assignment, rough drafts, notes and comments from the professor to help the writing tutor focus the session on necessary aspects of the paper.
