What We Do

We are glad to help students who have questions at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming to final draft. Though most of our work is with class assignments, we will also give advice on such tasks as résumés and applications. A professional tutor will respond to your questions within 48 hours. The tutor will give specific suggestions, hints about effective writing, and further questions for the writer to consider. When the concerns seem too complex to address effectively through the On-line Writing Lab, the tutor will recommend that the writer make an appointment at the Nittany Success Center.

What We Do Not Do

The tutors will not correct or proofread your work. These are important tasks , but student writers learn little when someone else does them. Additionally, we will not provide content for your papers. Our job is to bring out the skills and ideas you didn't know you had. Finally, tutors will not give an overall evaluation of your work or predict grades.
