Writing Center

Introducing the Writing Center

The Writing Center operates on the 1st floor of DeTamble Library (sharing an office with Counseling). We offer one-on-one tutoring with student writing tutors to help you communicate clearly. The purpose of writing tutors is not to ‘fix’ your paper or anticipate how your instructor will grade the assignment, but to engage in a conversation about writing.

The tutors are trained to be patient, non-judgemental, and maintain privacy (i.e. your use of tutors will not be share with your classmates or instructor, unless requested). Tutoring sessions are offered primarily in person but can be conducted online. Tutors are available ‘on call’ to meet with students in the library or virtually by email correspondence or a Microsoft Teams meeting.

To contact the center, please email us at [email protected] or call 910-277-5023.
