ANY STUDENT, ANY PROJECT, ANY STAGE

 

Any Student:  Regardless of your level of confidence or writing expertise, meeting with an experienced writing coach will give you a fresh perspective on your writing.

Any Project:  Whether it's a major research paper, a cover letter, or a forum post, we'll help you understand your assignment and meet your writing goals.

Any Stage:  Meeting with a writing coach will help guide your brainstorming, drafting, revising, or editing. If you're having trouble getting started, we can help generate ideas. If you want to make sure your thesis is well supported, we can help with that, too.

 

 

Where we are located

The Writing Center is located on the second floor of the Lindner Tower within the Student Success Center.

How it works

For face-to-face tutoring
  • Please bring a printed copy of your draft as well as the assignment sheet.
  • YOU are in charge of the direction of the appointment, so before you arrive, try to prepare questions for the tutor or some goals for the tutorial.
  • You or the tutor will usually read your paper aloud. Reading your paper aloud helps you to catch errors or places where you may want to revise. Many writers find that this strategy is useful.
  • You may also work on pre-writing, brainstorming, outlining, improving grammar, documenting sources, and other aspects of writing, even if you are not working on a particular assignment.
 

Other important information

The Writing Center is not a proofreading or editing service, although we are happy to help writers learn these skills. We will help you learn to find and correct sentence-level errors (such as grammar errors, punctuation errors, and typos). We may direct you to additional resources at the end of a session. Our goal is to help you learn skills that you can use in future writing projects.
 
 

Resources for English Language Learners (ELLs)

The Writing Center also provides support for English Language Learners (ELLs). If students need help with any language needs (listening, speaking, reading, writing), they can meet with the ESL Specialist in the Writing Center. Please make an appointment using our email: writinghelp@judsonu.edu.

During their freshman year, students are eligible for additional time on tests. Please see the Writing Center Coordinator for details and for the application.
