During a writing conference, your tutor will examine the structural features of your draft: thesis, organization and the development of your argument. Your tutor also will identify errors in grammar, mechanics and style and work with you to revise these errors.
The center offers handouts created by its writing tutors and guides written by Hamilton faculty. And there's a computer center where students can work on their writing.
The Writing Center assists faculty members with curricular planning and special writing assignments.
My tutor was amazing. She listened to my questions and helped make suggestions about where I could add information, explain more, and tighten prose. She was critical without criticizing, clearly explained concerns, and then gave her suggestions.
