Tutoring is available two ways:
The Writing Center is a quiet, comfortable place to work on class assignments or meet with a tutor. Peer tutors can help with class assignments or presentations at any point in the writing process, from brainstorming to proofreading. Although they are
happy to provide strategies for revising papers, tutors do not write, edit, or grade papers.
The Writing Center in 218 Eicher Hall (across the street from Wallwork Hall and next to the Cogen plant) is open Monday through Thursday 9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. No appointment is needed—just walk in.
Live peer tutoring is also available through the Online Writing Center. Instructions for scheduling an online session are available at the Writing Center.
The Writing Center is a quiet, comfortable place for you to work on class assignments or meet with a tutor. The Writing Center is equipped with computers that run the full Microsoft Office suite as well as a printer, a scanner, and a small library of
reference books, including current editions of the MLA
Handbook and the APA Manual.
Peer tutors can help you with class assignments and out-of-class writing such as cover letters and scholarship applications. A tutor will work one-on-one with you at any point in the writing process, from brainstorming to revising. Though they are happy
to provide strategies for revising papers, tutors do not write, edit or grade papers.
The Writing Center can be of the most help if you:
Sessions typically last 30–45 minutes. Peer tutors respect the confidentiality of your visit; a report form will be sent to your instructor only at your request.
Live peer tutoring is also available through the Online Writing Center. You can find more information or schedule an appointment for an online session by visiting the
Writing Center website.
You can also ask writing questions online at Facebook
or by tweeting @IUPWriting.
