A few tips:
Writing Center tutors are here to assist you with all of your writing needs. Simply stop by Murphy Library Learning Center sign up for a tutoring session. You may also come in on a drop-in basis if tutors are available. Use our computers, our reference books, our couch, our staplers, our tables--but most of all use our friendly and knowledgeable tutoring staff.
To get the most from your tutoring session, please bring a copy of the assignment as well as any notes or drafts. Feel free to bring in electronic versions of your work as well. Although tutors can help at the last minute, the sooner you can come in the better. Peer tutors encourage writers to be as independent as possible. We will not edit or proofread papers; instead, we ask questions designed to help writers find and analyze their own problems.
On any given day, you are as likely to see a biology major as an English major, a freshman as a senior--or even a graduate student--using the Writing Center. Some people are working on their resumes, others are brushing up on APA documentation, and still others are discussing paper topics or overcoming writer's block. The people who visit the Writing Center are a diverse group, but they all share a commitment to improve their writing.
Peer tutors offer writers help in preparing
at any stage in the composing process:
Every paper can be better.
Better writers, not just better papers
Every writer has strengths.
Writers are in charge of their writings.
The writer does the writing.
For tutoring to be teaching, the writer must talk so the tutor can listen
