How may we help you?

All the coaches in the Writing Center see writing as a process that can be approached effectively by talking about strategies for good writing.  Coaches talk with students and help them think through a plan for communicating with an appropriate audience who, in most cases, is the instructor who assigned the writing. Tutors may discuss some or all of the following ideas with students:

  • How to identify audience and purpose for writing
  • How to organize an essay around major and important ideas
  • How to construct important elements of an essay like introductions, thesis statements, and conclusions
  • How to improve on clarity and development of essay
  • How to incorporate and engage with primary and secondary source material
  • How to follow MLA, APA, or Chicago formats
  • How to proofread for problems in logic, coherence, structure, and/or grammar
