The Write Place


    WHAT THE WRITING CENTER WILL DO:

    • Assist students in understanding the assignment & professor’s expectations.
    • 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.
    • Tutors cannot guarantee a quick “fix” for student’s writing problem.
