Writing Center Services

What do we usually do in the Writing Center? Tutors assist students with writing papers, organizing speeches, and forming ideas for assignments that have writing or speaking elements.  

Tutors brainstorm with students to create their own ideaschoose topics, research and outline, understand thesis statements, and develop their own writing process and academic voices. Writing Center tutors can instruct students on formatting styles like MLA and APA and show students how to avoid plagiarism.   

Students often come to the WC in person to go over a paper with a tutor. This is called face-to-face tutoring. Tutors focus on things like argumentation, grammar, and style. Often a tutor’s main role is to help students find and develop their own voices. 

 

 

In addition to face-to-face tutoring, the Writing Center also offers one-on-one Zoom sessions, which are live video chat sessions like Facetime or Skype; as well as live chat, which works like instant messaging.

 

Email, Zoom video chat, and live messaging chat are developed and delivered by Writing Center adjunct faculty tutors, who also teach courses at KCKCC.
