What should I bring and what do I need to know to work with a Writing Center tutor?

A writing center session, on average, lasts about 20-30 minutes. Students are encouraged to schedule additional meetings or continue to drop in as much as they need. If possible, students should bring the instructor’s assignment sheet or class notes detailing the requirements. At the beginning of the session, a tutor will talk to the student to find out more about the assignment: the class and type of assignment, when it’s due, and if the student needs more help getting started. If the document is in the process of completion, the tutor will review the draft with the student for the organization and support of the paper’s ideas and provide recommendations for revision and editing.

The main thing to know is that the tutor’s role is to support the writer’s goals and provide helpful feedback. Tutors are not proofreaders, and papers may not be dropped off for suggested revision and editing. The assignment must reflect the student’s own work, not the tutor’s. Students who cannot fully participate in a writing center session due to tight schedules are encouraged to complete an online submission form for the SC4 OWL.*
