We Can Help You Get Started Writing

Writing Center Tutors are here to help get started on your project. We can help you better understand an assignment, or work together to develop a topic, thesis, or ideas.

We Can Help You Revise

If you already have a draft of your project, we can collaborate with you to identify what's effective in your draft and what revisions might strengthen it. We can clarify issues in writing such as summarizing, paraphrasing, and citing sources.

We Can Help You Refine Mechanics

We work with writers on grammar and style and ways to revise your work to make your writing clearer. Rather than proofread text, our tutors can help you identify patterns of error and learn to avoid those errors in revisions & future writing.

Dissertators and faculty members seeking out editing services may contact Lauri Dietz.

We Can Help You Write in Many Languages

We have tutors who can work with you on writing in languages other than English depending on the expertise of our current staff. Call or email the Writing Center for more information.
