The Writing Center

The Writing Center at Saint Joseph's College provides a free consulting service on any type of writing project for students, faculty, and staff. Our trained staff provides one-on-one and small-group tutoring during all stages of the writing process, including but not limited to: understanding an assignment; developing and supporting arguments; drafting and revising; and proofreading and editing.

What We Do:

During sessions in the Writing Center, you can expect your tutor to:

  • Support your growth as a writer through all stages of the writing process
  • Advance your individual writing goals
  • Focus tutoring sessions on concrete and specific writing concerns
  • Suggest self-assessment strategies
  • Provide strategies and resources for writing, revising, and editing paper
