Writing Center Tutoring Services

Online Tutoring

Tutoring is an invaluable method of learning that provides the opportunity for a student to explore all aspects of the writing process in a stress-free environment. It allows the student to attain a better understanding of principles learned in the classroom, or it can help him or her to grasp rules and fundamentals that he or she might be having difficulty with. Here are just a few of the areas that might be covered in a typical tutoring session:

  • Different types of writing assignments;
  • The writing process;
  • Paragraph organization, content, and development;
  • Essay organization, content, and development;
  • Topic sentences and thesis statements;
  • Library research;
  • Grammar and punctuation;
  • Internal parenthetical documentation and works cited pages;
  • MLA format;
  • Revision; and
  • The use of reference books on writing, including Everyday Writer.

A tutoring session is a place for students to engage in individualized, active learning about their own writing. As a result, writing consultants do not normally write on students’ papers. Instead, these consultants ask students to read their papers aloud and both ask and answer questions about these papers. By engaging students in conversation about their papers, writing consultants help students to not only recognize but also understand and improve potential weaknesses (and strengths!) in their writing.

The Writing Center currently offers one-on-one tutoring for students online and face-to-face. Although walk-ins are welcome for face-to-face tutoring, to guarantee service, students are encouraged to visit The Writing Center to schedule an appointment to ensure availability, especially given the limited hours of tutoring that are provided.
