"How can I know what I think 'til I see what I say?"
At the Writing Center, we guide students through the writing process and provide support for faculty who assign written work. Tutoring sessions encourage students to make informed decisions about their writing. The outcome of tutoring should be that the writer, not necessarily a specific piece of writing, will be changed.
Tutors do not write, re-write, or line edit any portion of a student's paper. Rather, they assist with pre-writing, drafting, researching, revising, and editing. Most importantly, the Center aims to build students' confidence and improve their writing skills.
"Just get it down on paper, and then we'll see what to do with it."
