One-on-One Tutoring

Writing Center consultants and student assistants lead 20-minute tutoring sessions with individual students. These tutoring sessions are aimed at helping students become better writers by identifying areas that the student can work on including recurring grammatical errors, organization, and proper citation of sources. While the staff is more than willing to help a student correct these recurring mistakes or problems, the Writing Center is not a proofreading service and staff member will not correct every mistake made.

 

Writing Workshops

Writing Workshops are generally offered twice a week, each Tuesday and Thursday from 12:15 - 12:50 p.m., and cover a specific writing topic. Some roundtable discussions are held on Wednesdays. To see a list of workshops offered this semester, please click here.

 

Computers

The Writing Center is equipped with nine HP computers, several laptop computers, a scanner, and access to a networked printer. In addition, the Writing Center has an HP computer with a podium and projection capabilities. Tutors and student assistants are available to help students with word processing and Internet research, including the use of electronic databases.

 

Roundtable Discussions

Roundtable discussions allow UT Martin students and faculty to get involved in interactive workshops. Celebrating Black Writers, Women's Writers, and Recognizing Campus Writers are some of the types of roundtables offered in the Writing Center.  Please check the list of workshops for specific semester offerings. 

 

Talk Time

During Spring Semester 2014, Talk Time will meet in the Writing Center (H209) every Wednesday from 4 to 5 p.m. Talk Time is designed to give second language speakers an opportunity to practice language skills, but this activity is open to any interested student.
