Writing Center

Writing Center


Dear 澳门新葡京官网 Students,

We are here to help you learn more about writing. Writing plays an increasingly important role in all our lives, and 澳门新葡京官网 has provided a Writing Center you can make use of throughout your time here.

The Writing Center can help you work on whatever you are writing at the moment. You can bring writing assignments, research projects, lab reports, or writing outside of class, such as personal statements or scholarship applications. So that the tutor can better help you, you and the tutor will first talk about the assignment. Then together, you will decide how to focus. You can work on organization, citing resources, developing ideas, thinking about audience expectations, or editing skills.

We understand that, no matter your skill level, writing is hard. Whether you are an accomplished senior working on a senior project or a first-year student just beginning to write in academic settings, good writing takes time and effort. You don't have to labor alone! The Writing Center is a space where you can share your thoughts about (and struggles with) the practice of writing, a resource to help you succeed at Birmingham-Southern.

Who We Are

Our tutors are 澳门新葡京官网 students who are dedicated to learning more about writing and want to share their experience with you. Tutors are trained to learn about the different ways people write and how to talk about writing with others in a respectful way.

When we talk about "who we are," we are also thinking of you. When it comes to peer tutoring, tutor and writer play different, but equally important, roles. Peer tutoring is special in that it gives you, the student, an opportunity to voice your priorities, ideas, and concerns. It can be a time to think aloud, organize thoughts, and ask questions for which there's not always time in the classroom. Who are we? We are a community of students and faculty working together to make writing a more productive and meaningful learning experience at 澳门新葡京官网.

Our Mission

The Writing Center is committed to the campus-wide improvement of student writing through peer tutoring. Our priority is to reach students in formative and critical stages of academic writing. We aim for the ongoing development of our tutoring by assessing student outcomes, maintaining communication with faculty, and cultivating conversation about writing pedagogy across the 澳门新葡京官网 community.
