How It Works
The Oglethorpe Writing Center offers Oglethorpe students free, one-on-one tutoring sessions with a fellow student writer trained to consult on writing assignments in any discipline and at any stage of the writing process.
The Center is located on the 2nd floor of Weltner Library and is open Monday through Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Sunday from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
All Oglethorpe students are welcome, including:
- students seeking help with grammar or style,
- resident and commuting first-year students enrolled in Narratives of the Self,
- Core students at all levels,
- University College students,
- transfer students adjusting to Oglethorpe writing standards,
- second language/international students adjusting to the conventions of American academic writing,
- any students writing class papers, creative essays, critiques, research projects, speeches and symposia presentations, and
- students developing c.v.’s, job or scholarship applications, or writing essays for graduate school applications or fellowships.
Whether you spend 10, 15, or 30 minutes consulting with a Writing Center Tutor, it will be time well spent. Although the Writing Center is not an editing or proofreading service, tutors are attentive listeners and readers trained to help with a variety of writing-related issues, from identifying grammar errors and stylistic problems to brainstorming and thesis development, and from clarifying, organizing, and supporting a persuasive argument to responding to audience-specific concerns and revising a draft.
