General Writing Consultation

Description

The Writing Center offers one-on-one consultations in which our trained writing consultants, or peer writing tutors, assist students with their writing assignments. Any student may make an appointment to bring their paper to the Writing Center and receive a consultation. Our consultants help students develop and structure ideas and organize their thoughts (i.e.: they will not simply proofread the paper for grammatical errors). With this, students gain additional confidence in their abilities to communicate what they want to say in writing; we essentially provide the tools for students to discover and articulate solutions to intellectual challenges presented by a given assignment.

Appointments must be scheduled at least two days in advance. For greater effectiveness, a paper should be brought to the Writing Center several days before it is due to ensure that the student will have ample opportunity to make the suggested changes or come back for more consultations. Meetings are held in Room 234 of the Classroom and Business Building, or CBB, Bldg. 499. Upon arrival, the student will sign in at a designated sign-in computer and wait for their consultant to call their name to start the consultation.
