Want help with your writing?

The Writing Center provides support for all writers at every stage of the writing process. Whether you are looking for another eye to read over your already polished work or struggling to get started on a writing assignment, our trained peer tutors can help you reach the goals that you set for your writing. We serve students in all majors and subject areas, so if you have a writing-related question, schedule an appointment, send us an email, or stop by for a walk-in tutoring session.


One-on-One Tutoring Appointments

One-on-one tutoring appointments are available from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. You can call 419-772-2186 during these hours to schedule a 30-minute tutoring appointment or stop by for a walk-in appointment. Appointments are made on a first-come first-served basis, so we recommend that you schedule your tutoring session in advance.

Preparing for Your Appointment

When you come for a one-on-one tutoring session, please bring a print copy of your assignment sheet and at least one print copy of your draft-in-progress. We encourage you to spend some time thinking about the specific questions or concerns that you have about your writing so that you can discuss them with your tutor during your tutoring session. Make sure to schedule your appointment well in advance of the due date so that you have time to revise your writing in response to the feedback that you receive.

What to Expect

During your tutoring session, a peer tutor will:

  • Ask questions to help you revise your draft.
  • Show you how to use resources to develop your writing, including those that address grammar, punctuation, and usage problems.
  • Make suggestions that can help you improve your writing.
  • NOT judge your writing. Your tutor will show you how to judge your writing yourself!


Write in the Writing Room

The Writing Center is not just a space for tutoring; it is also a space for writing. Join us on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. to work on your writing in a quiet and supportive environment. We will have a tutor available to help you brainstorm, work through writer’s block, or answer questions that come up as you write. Just bring your laptop or other writing materials to the Writing Center, and be prepared to write.


New: Email the Writing Center

Have a quick question about a citation style? Want tips on how to address a gramatical or mechanical issue in your writing? Need help finding resources for developing a particular writing strategy or technique? The Writing Center invites you to make us your first stop  for answering questions about your writing. Email us at with your writing-related questions and our tutors will get back to you during our normal tutoring hours.  

NOTE: Writing Center tutors are not able to schedule appointments via email or to provide feedback on your writing electronically. For these services, you still need to call 419-772-2186 or stop by the Writing Center in person.
