Our writing resources provide academic assistance for the writing of effective essays and research papers.
We serve writing students at every level through one-to-one tutoring, workshops, and requested presentations where students learn together outside of formal classes.
While The Learning Hub’s writing staff is more than willing to help with most any type or level of writing, we are not an editing service, and will not simply proofread your paper for grammatical or citation mistakes. Rather, our tutors will walk you through primary concerns such as argument, logic, organization, clarity, and flow, before then working on secondary concerns including grammar and mechanics. Please keep this in mind as you make appointments with us.
Graduate or doctoral students seeking assistance with theses or dissertations will be assisted by our Writing Specialists or Writing Coordinator.
ENG 101 and 102 Assistance
The Hub’s Writing TAs assist ENG 101 and 102 by attending the class once a week and helping the instructor with in-class writing activities. One writing TA is assigned to each ENG 101 or 102 section.
Writing Web Series
The Learning Hub is proud to present a blog published and hosted by our very own writing staff – our Writing Web Series! Check us out for Web Series Wednesdays, where we will post our newly updated handouts, videos on various topics, and other great writing-related tips, tricks, and tidbits.
Prior to finals week, The Hub’s writing staff offers walk-in writing assistance. Students from all courses seeking writing assistance are encouraged to come to receive one-to-one tutoring. Mobile Hub times are posted closer to the time of the event via Campus Announcements and flyers throughout campus.
Walk-In Writing Help
Students from all courses seeking writing assistance are encouraged to visit for one-on-one tutoring in The Student Union and Brookens Library. Days and times are subject to change each semester – stay up to date through Campus Announcements!
Online Writing Workshop Series
Each semester, the writing center offers a variety of Online Workshops covering topics related to writing, critical thinking, and grammar/mechanics. Workshops are conducted through Skype for Business, which means you can learn in the comfort of your own home. Sometimes these workshops even count as Extra Credit – check with your instructor to see if this is a viable option for you and your class!
