Academic Center

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. The Academic Center is located on the third floor of McEntegart Hall in Room 306.

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
