PURPOSE OF TUTORING SESSIONS
The focus of tutoring sessions is to help writers gain one or two skills that they can apply to future writing assignments, thereby permanently improving their writing. Simply helping writers to edit their work does not result in long-term learning.
Therefore, tutoring sessions are not intended to:
- take the place of in-class writing instruction or discussion of writing assignments
- correct, edit, or make papers error-free
- guarantee results or grades; writers are always responsible for their own work.
The Writing Center gives priority to drop-in appointments, and it is always best to bring drafts to the WC for feedback. We cannot guarantee that an emailed draft will receive timely feedback, but we will use free minutes to give the writer feedback on emailed drafts in the order that the drafts are received.
Drafts can be emailed to: WritingCenter@concordia.edu
