The USA Writing Center is an instructional facility with the primary goal of improving student writing skills. The Writing Center's tutoring staff includes both graduate and undergraduate students who are excited to help clients increase their confidence and success in the craft of writing.
At the Writing Center, students may receive help on any type of writing task at any stage of the writing process, including understanding assignments, brainstorming, development of ideas, organization, integrating sources, proper citation, revision strategies, and grammar review. The Writing Center also provides assistance with APA, MLA, Chicago, and other academic styles. In addition to one-on-one assistance, the Writing Center also maintains a writing resources wiki page, which provides videos, handouts, and helpful links for student writers.
During one-on-one consulting sessions, we focus on working with student writers to help them improve their skills, rather than simply editing papers. Consulting sessions are held in the Writing Center's main location in Academic Services Center 1390, as well as the Center's satellite location in Marx Library 240A. E-tutoring consultations are also available (for students enrolled in online courses). Click here to see available hours at each location.
