The Writing Center is ready to:

  • Help students understand their assignments and brainstorm before they write.
  • Read first drafts of papers and help students sharpen their thesis statements, organize their support, and develop ideas.
  • Look over subsequent drafts for common “errors,” work on citations and bibliographies, and help student figure out how make corrections themselves.

Our tutors can help students get started on writing assignments in any class. We specialize in helping writers develop a thesis and support. We love thinking with students about organizing ideas and paragraphs. We know how to help students figure out MLA, APA, and Chicago formats.

Student tutors:

David Barbieri, Aaron Cooley, Janae Evans, Hope Harbert, Micah Hirschler, LaRissa Lawrie, Aleah Seemann, Leandra Silsby, Paula Smith, Carrie Weisshaar.
