Morgan State University Writing Center
Under the auspices of the Department of English and Language Arts, the mission of the Morgan State University Writing Center is to support undergraduate and graduate students from all academic disciplines to become more effective and confident writers. It is a place where students may come to discuss their work, clarify their ideas, and improve their writing skills.
According to Leigh Ryan (University of Maryland), tutoring is a collaborative activity. It requires that you prepare well in advance of your visit. According to Ryan, the most successful sessions are achieved by preparing for the visit:
First, schedule an appointment in advance of your assignment's due date. Second, think about what you need from a session and make some notes. For example, list specific questions you have about your paper. Third, bring with you a copy of your assignment sheet and any related notes, handouts, articles, or textbooks. Fourth, bring any other writing you may have connected to the assignment, like drafts, notes, free writing, journal entries, or peer review comments.
Appointments are required. Send an e-mail request to email@example.com.
