  • Help students in brainstorming, planning, and/or organizing ideas for a writing assignment.
  • Teach students how to construct a thesis statement, topic sentence, and/or determine the focus of the paper.
  • Assist students in developing supporting ideas and connecting those ideas to the main idea, or thesis statement.
  • Teach students proper citation methods, whether MLA, APA, or Chicago formatting is required.
  • Encourage students’ ownership of the paper, the ideas contained in the paper, and development of the student’s ability to revise independently.

WHAT THE WRITING CENTER WILL NOT DO:
  • Tutors will not write the paper for the student.
  • Tutors will not proofread and/or edit the paper.
  • Tutors will not judge the paper, according to grade.
