For Students

What happens in a Writing Center tutoring session?

Tutoring sessions involve a wide variety of tasks, but at the heart of every session is conversation—a conversation about your ideas and the best ways to make your ideas clear. Students can work with a tutor on any aspect of their writing. Students can request a tutoring appointment. Writers and tutors often work together on the following:

  • Brainstorming
  • Editing strategies
  • Organization
  • Grammar
  • Thesis statements
  • MLA or APA citations
  • Argument and Evidence
