What to Expect in a Tutoring Session

Our goal is to help students apply the writing skills they’re learning in core English classes to their work in the sciences. Like the Writing Center as a whole, we are not proofreaders who simply fix grammatical errors. Our main focus will be larger issues like content and organization. We strive to:

  • Increase the confidence of student writers
  • Cultivate the skills students need to create effective scientific documents
  • Teach students that writing skills can and should be applied beyond the boundaries of their English papers

PLEASE NOTE: To help the Science Writing Center give you the best possible advice, please bring a copy of the assignment description. All students are responsible for understanding their instructors’ expectations and the university’s academic honesty and integrity policies.

We have a new location!  Come see us in the Eccles Science Learning Center
