The USD Writing Center, which is free to all USD students, helps students improve their academic writing. Students may bring work in any stage of completion to the Writing Center, from brainstorming notes to rough drafts to graded essays. Students are tutored individually by their peers in all phases of the writing process, including:
Our staff includes tutors experienced in working with students for whom English is a second language and with graduate students working on small and large writing projects.
All Writing Center tutors are recommended by USD faculty. Tutors study a wide variety of academic majors. All tutors must complete an intensive initial training program before they begin work in the Center. Tutors also attend weekly training workshops throughout the semester.
Although tutors won't "fix" your paper, they are experts in helping you meet your goals for all your written projects.
