The Writing Consultants will also show students how to:

  • Revise a rough draft
  • Edit spelling mistakes
  • Find grammatical errors
  • Recognize areas that need rewording
  • Locate documentation resources

The Writing Consultant’s role is to help students improve writing skills by answering questions regarding writing mechanics, organization and content. The Writing Consultant will not “fix” the paper for students seeking assistance.

The Writing Center services are provided to show a student “how to” identify and correct these issues him or herself.
