Writing Center FAQs
Q: Will Writing Center staff proofread and edit my paper?
A: Writing Center tutors do not edit or proofread your paper. Instead, they will point out recurring grammar or punctuation issues and help you recognize and correct them yourself.
Q: What help can I expect from the Writing Center?
A: Writing Center tutors are happy to discuss your writing project at any stage. Come in and receive help with brainstorming, developing ideas, organizing and drafting, researching, documenting sources, and using correct grammar and punctuation.
Q: How can I get the most out of my Writing Center session?
A: Bring in a hard copy of your assignment and a draft of what you have worked on already. We will read over your draft and help you see ways you can improve it.
Q: Is it better to make an appointment or just walk-in?
A: Appointments receive priority over walk-in service, so at busy times in the semester, it’s best to make an appointment. With an appointment, you’re guaranteed a 30 minute session without waiting.
Q: What should I bring to the session?
A: Please bring the assignment instructions, what you have written so far, and specific goals for the session.
