The Writing Center
Certified by the College Reading and Learning Association
The Writing Center, located in the Diane M. Halle Library (Room 126), has dedicated professional and peer tutors from a variety of fields who work with hundreds of Endicott students, faculty, and staff each semester. We offer free one-on-one conferences to discuss any writing for any Endicott class -- undergraduate or graduate. Though we welcome walk-in appointments if tutors are available, the best way to meet with a tutor is to make an appointment through our online scheduling system.
The typical tutoring session lasts a half-hour, though you can schedule hour appointments if you'd like. Together with the tutor, you set the agenda for the session, discussing what you feel are the most crucial writing tasks you'd like to work on for a particular assignment. Writing tutors can help you in any of the following areas:
- Understanding assignments
- Developing clear arguments and ideas
- Finding and using sources (research, quotation, and paraphrasing)
- Citing sources using APA, MLA, or Chicago-style documentation
- Writing strong introductions and conclusions
- Grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure
- Discussing presentation and public-speaking skills
- Formatting and design of visual, spatial, and audio compositions
Writing tutors do not edit or proofread your papers; rather, and as stated in our mission statement, our purpose is to help you learn how to improve upon your writing by finding your own voice as a developing writer.
