Writing tutors are available for half-hour appointments or "drop-in" consultations starting the second week of each quarter. The student tutors are not proofreaders. Rather, they help you spot errors and give assistance in organizing and communicating your thoughts on paper. The Writing Center is sponsored by the English department and housed in the Center for Learning.
