The Writing Center offers tutoring, where skilled students will work with you one-on-one at whatever stage of writing you are in – the idea-development stage, the drafting stage, and the revision stage – and can show you how to choose an appropriate essay topic, how to develop a thesis statement and paragraphs, how to revise your essay, or assist with any other writing needs you may have. Tutors will be alert listeners and will ask questions, but will not judge or evaluate the work in progress. More information regarding all services can be found on the Writing Center website: http://inside.augsburg.edu/writingcenter/.


The Writing Center provides personal, one-on-one tutoring in order to help you at all levels of the writing process. The Center offers a space for conversation by creating a welcoming community for graduate and undergraduate students to practice the art of writing. Their purpose is to enhance the writing instruction that happens in academic classrooms by pairing you with an experienced reader, who engages you in conversation about your writing assignments and ideas and familiarizes you with audience expectations and academic genre conventions. The Center focuses on the rhetorical aspects of the text and provides student-centered teaching on works in progress. All tutoring sessions are free of charge and are valuable resources for you as a writer. I highly recommend that you use them.
