Feedback From Students

"I love the availability of hours in the Writing Center and how everyone is so friendly. This is my fourth time, and I really appreciate all the help I can receive."

"[The tutor] was very nice and helpful and allowed me to think and write in my own words."

"I found that the writing center understood my learning disabilities.  Not once did I ever have to explain myself.  When I used their services, I always felt comfortable sharing my papers.  As a student, writing can be difficult to share, so for the tutors to make me feel comfortable really helped my situation."

"I love that the tutors are extremely helpful and they understand the English language and essay writing very well to help other students.  The constant feedback is great to have as well."

"I had a very friendly tutor who helped me with all my questions. Thank you!  Very helpful if English is not your native language."

"The tutors are really nice and don't tell you what to do.  They make you think about it.  [The tutor] was really positive and really helpful in helping me make my paper stronger."

"She helped me get through the problems with punctuation without making me feel stupid."

"She was very encouraging and very helpful.  I learned so much in the short time we worked."

"She [the tutor] pointed out problems within my paper, yet made me think about why it was a problem. This will help me not make the mistake in the future. She was just genuinely very helpful and nice."

"I have sought their help on many papers throughout the course of the school year. Every time I receive their help, I learn more about writing. These people go beyond the call of duty in order to make students' time at the Writing Center more beneficial."

"[The tutor was] very patient and helpful with my third-grade questions on citing sources."

"[The tutor's] individual concern for my ability to express myself [was most helpful]."

"I think this is a great service and now that I have been here once, I plan on using the Writing Center as much as I can.

"[The tutor] asked structured questions to make me think of better ways to put my thoughts down in an understandable fashion. I appreciate your time and effort. Thank you!"
