-understanding and getting started on assignments: Students can come even before they have done any writing. Tutors will help them understand the demands of an assignment, review the knowledge they have, brainstorm and set them on the way of writing a draft
-expanding, clarifying and re-organizing drafts: Once they have a draft (no matter how skimpy or provisional or rough), tutors will give writers feedback on what works and what doesn't, and will help them negotiate revision
-correcting and polishing final drafts: At the last stage of the writing process, tutors will prioritize and point out patterns of grammatical or mechanical errors and help writers learn how to correct and avoid them.
The Writing Center has three kinds of services:
2. walk-in and by-appointement one-on-one tutorials—these are offered throughout the semester and help students with particular assignments
3. on-line tutorials—students submit their drafts and receive comprehensive feedback via email
