Writing Center

Writing assistance is available in the Center for Student Success. The center is staffed with trained professionals, with knowledge and experience in written communication. When faculty are not available, students will be referred to the Writing Fellows. The writing center can help with:

  • Active involvement in answering questions covering all parts of the writing process.
  • Reading your paper out loud to catch mistakes.
  • Working with CSS professionals on activities such as prewriting, outlining and organizing ideas.
  • Providing primary faculty/instructor’s materials for the assignment that you are working on. This assures you are guided toward the primary requirements as outlined by your instructor.
  • Advance preparation by visiting CSS with enough time to work with a CSS professional prior to your due date.

In-Person Tutoring – Hillsdale and Lenawee

Make tutoring work for you!

Come prepared
Bring your textbook, notes, and assignment sheets with you. Read your assignments and do your best to work through your homework problems before your tutoring session.

Attend classes regularly
Tutoring is designed to supplement class instruction, not to replace it.

Do not ask tutors to do your work
This includes homework, proof-read your assignment, or assist in any way with take-home exams. Tutors can help clarify assignments and identify skills needed to complete assignments. They can give you extra problems and examples like the ones your having trouble with and help you learn to solve them.

Understand that student tutors are not teachers
Teaching provides students with new information; tutoring helps the students master that information by providing alternate explanations, techniques and examples.

Use tutoring services early & often
You will benefit more from tutoring if you come when you first begin having problems. If you wait until the last minute, you may not be able to master the material in time to succeed on tests and assignments.

Do not expect tutors to know everything
Remember that tutors are students like you who have mastered specific course content with a specific instructor. They are not expected to have the level of experience of your professor.

Ask questions as they arise
If you remain silent, the tutor may assume you understand. Tutors have learned many ways to explain a single concept, so continue to ask questions until the material is clear for you.

Sign in at the front desk
Doing this helps us maintain funding to continue to provide these services free of charge.
