What the writing center can do for you:

  • Assist students in the use of the APA Manual.
  • Review papers, projects, and presentations in conjunction with students to help with any problems using APA format, research writing, or problems with general grammar and flow for psychology assignments.
  • Help students with writing problems they may be having in their current psychology courses.
  • Students must be present and active contributors in the tutoring process. Papers that are "dropped off" for proof reading will neither be read nor corrected by the writing tutor.
  • While the writing tutor is more than happy to assist students with writing needs and process, there is no guarantee by either the department nor by the writing tutor that the assignments assisted with at the writing center will guarantee an "A" in student work.
