​​The Writing Center provides free, one-on-one writing consultations to students, faculty and staff. We have a team of undergraduate students, graduate students, and instructors who can assist you in your writing. Our goal is to help you become a stronger, more confident writer, so we discuss your writing with you and offer assistance, but we do not edit or write your papers for you.​​

Our tutors can work with writers who are writing in both English and Arabic, and we offer specialized tutoring for writers who have accessibility needs.

Our consultants are trained to respect your level as a writer, whether you are a strong or weak writer or somewhere in between, and to support you during any phase of the writing process (planning, outlining, drafting or revising).

You can schedule an appointment using the link below. You are also welcome to drop in, and if a tutor is available, they will be happy to help.
