Visit the Writing Center! Peer tutors can help at any point in your writing process, from brainstorming to revising. Although peer tutors are trained to identify and explain patterns of errors to students, tutors do not write, edit, or grade papers. The peer tutors at the Writing Center can be most helpful if you do the following:
- Formulate: come prepared to the session with specific writing issues to discuss
- Focus: be engaged in the session by playing an active role in discussing your paper with the tutor
- Follow through: take notes during the session and make changes afterward
The Writing Center is located on the first floor of the duPont-Ball Library and is open noon to 10:00 p.m Monday through Thursday, noon to 3:00 p.m. on Friday, and 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday. We suggest that you make an appointment online 24 hours in advance at http://www.stetson.edu/other/writing-center/. Walk-ins are welcome, but be prepared to wait if we are busy.
Writing Center sessions last about 30–45 minutes. After the session a peer tutor can email your instructor about your visit, if you choose. Email any questions about the Writing Center’s services to [email protected].
