Getting Help from the Writing Center...

If you are on campus, we encourage you to visit us in the Writing Center in person. On campus, writers work with tutors one-to-one in 30- or 60-minute tutorial sessions. Sessions can focus on understanding an assignment sheet, planning an essay, developing ideas, revising work through the process of reading a draft together, or addressing other writing concerns. Tutors strive to help writers communicate their unique ideas as clearly as possible and in their distinct voice. Writers should come to appointments prepared with their writing project’s assignment sheet, any notes or drafts they’ve written toward the project, and a readiness to work with their tutor.

If you cannot come to campus, the Writing Center offers two forms of distance tutoring:

  • Online Tutoring: Using WC Online’s audio-visual, instant-messaging, and document-sharing tools, writers work with tutors in 30- or 60-minute sessions that are designed to be as much like our face-to-face tutorial sessions as possible.

  • e-Tutoring: Writers submit up to 8 double-spaced pages (or 2,000 words) of their work to receive written feedback from Writing Center tutors. Feedback includes reader response, questions, and suggestions. Writers are encouraged to follow-up written feedback with an online meeting to clarify questions or continue the discussion. Please schedule e-Tutoring appointments in 60-minute increments. During this time, the tutor will read and respond to your work. You will receive the feedback soon after the appointment.
