The Academic Center is a resource for students seeking help in every aspect of writing. Our professional tutors provide expertise and individual assistance on all the fundamentals of writing, from planning and drafting, to editing and revising assignments.
Tutors provide one-on-one assistance on these basics:
- Grammar and punctuation
- Analyzing and understanding assignments
- Spelling, word choice and sentence structure
- Planning, executing and revising work
In addition, tutors aid and advise students on more complex issues, such as:
- Citation styles and procedures, particularly APA/MLA
- Business and résumé writing
- Study skills and critical thinking
- Test preparation

“I was actively involved in the Academic Center; I would go there almost every week. I knew all the tutors, I would get all my papers reviewed by them, and I would also go to peer tutoring one-on-one with an [upperclassman] nursing student. Having my papers reviewed really helped me understand where I needed to be and how I can improve. It was really helpful.”
