Tutors help students by:
- Focusing on the strengths and weaknesses in their writing as a whole, as opposed to the writing demonstrated in one specific paper.
- Showing students how to find and correct their own errors, as opposed to correcting their errors for them.
- Advising students how to improve the following areas of their writing:
The short answer to this question is "no, not exactly." We can assist you better if you bring your draft to us several days before a paper is due. Since we focus on two or three issues during the tutoring session, another session may be necessary to discuss everything in your paper.
Although we help you to discover and correct errors, we are not a proofreading service. We work collaboratively with you to help you become a better editor of your own work.
Tutoring sessions usually last 30 minutes.
If you are more than five minutes late for an appointment, the session may be given to someone else. We appreciate your promptness.
If you need to cancel an appointment, you can do so on WC Online by selected your appointment box and clicking "Cancel This Appointment." You can also call the Writing Center at (509) 313-6610 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
