At the Writing Center, peer Writing Consultants are trained to work with students at all stages of the writing process—brainstorming, outlining, drafting, revising—and on papers across various fields of study. We do not proofread or “fix” papers; instead, we provide feedback and work intensively with students on higher order topics such as organization, structure, fulfilling assignment requirements, thesis creation, citation styles, use of evidence, research strategies, etc. However, we will point out and discuss patterns of grammatical and mechanical error as necessary. We also assist students with test-preparation, reading comprehension, and writing resumes, cover letters, and graduate school applications.

Our goal at the Writing Center is to provide supplementary writing and reading education in a safe, patient, and nonjudgmental space so that students will feel comfortable and eager to utilize writing assistance that meets their individual needs.
