Please set hour-long appointments, unless you are sure you can achieve your appointment goal in 30 minutes (EX: brainstorming, outlining, or a 300 word assignment). Don't forget to bring your materials (including assignment sheet and any other materials), and come see us in Alderson Hall 133.
Faculty: our tutors are able to help you too! They can help you create better classroom writing assignments, modify current classroom assignments so that they have more writing outcomes associated with them, and show you some tips for how to grade and evaluate good writing. They will even take a look at your professional work!
WHAT WE DO:
The Writing Center will help you write clearer and more precise reports, research essays, scientific papers, resumes, cover letters, grant proposals, etc. Our tutors are faculty and/or professional writers trained to help you develop your own writing so that you sound as professional and confident as you look.
We will help you workshop and revise your oral presentations and classroom presentations so that they are accomplished and flow smoothly. You can even do a practice presentation in front of a live audience who will give you immediate feedback.
We will show you how to organize your thoughts, focus your research, clear up your grammar and syntax errors, and teach you how to create and communicate your thesis expertly.
Our tutors will help you with your writing and public speaking no matter where you are in the process: they can brainstorm with you, give you ideas for topics, help you begin or end your research, and even help with graduate theses and professional work.
We have online tutoring as well, so check the scheduler for appointments.
