The Writing Center offers face-to-face and online peer writing tutoring. The Writing Center offers assistance with the following:

  • Organizing, editing, and revising
  • Transitioning between ideas and sections
  • Developing proofreading and editing skills
  • Developing professional documents such as resumes, cover letters, scholarship and fellowship essays, and personal statements
  • Integrating sources

Writing tutors can help writers at various levels of experience and at any stage of the writing process. Tutors come from a variety of majors and are trained to analyze a piece of writing in order to help the writer strengthen their writing ability and have a clear plan to feel confident during the revision process. The tutors do not correct or edit writing; instead, they will ask you relevant questions about your work and discuss strategies to improve your writing.
