About the Writing Center

The Writing Center, located on the second floor of the Diane M. Halle Library (LIB 204), consists of 10 dedicated professional tutors from a variety of backgrounds and over 20 peer tutors with a range of majors to assist all students.  Certified by the College Reading and Learning Association, the Writing Center provides individual and group writing support for all members of the Endicott community – students, faculty, and staff alike. Through collaborative face-to-face or online sessions, we encourage you to identify your strengths and weaknesses and understand how and why changes can improve your work.

Tutors do not edit or proofread work; instead, we are committed to helping you maximize your written communication skills at all stages of the writing process, from brainstorming and outlining to revising and presenting.
