What happens during a Writing Center or Writing Center Online session?

The tutor will read the assignment directions and your work on the assignment with you.  Next, you and the tutor will discuss your questions and concerns. The tutor will point out parts of the writing that need revision and help you determine a revision strategy. If you need help with proofreading, formatting, or citing sources, the tutor will work through those issues in your assignment and show you appropriate resources for your future use.
