New location for after hours writing help


    Students who are struggling with writing assignments on nights and weekends can now meet with a trained tutor from the Writing Center in the Tom Brown/Pete Wright apartments.

    The after hours tutoring is no longer located in the Mary Couts Burnett Library, said Dr. Steve Sherwood, director of the writing center.

    “The library annex closed when construction began,” he said. “The really big construction began in May so we moved out of there.”

    There will be a tutor available from 6-9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday in the conference room on the second floor of the common area in Tom Brown/Pete Wright. Two of the center’s “veteran” tutors, Josh Toulouse and Malcolm Baker, will be working this shift, according to an email from the center.

    The center’s professionals offer recommendations about purpose, thesis, structure, content and other criteria.

    “We’re happy to work on any kind of paper ranging from a letter home begging for money, all the way up to an advanced dissertation,” Sherwood said.

    During weekday business hours, students can visit the Writing Center’s main location in Reed Hall.

    “Reed 419 is the main place to come for help,” Sherwood said. “In addition to face-to-face tutoring, we also offer an email response service.”

    The services are available to anyone, including graduate students and faculty.
