The Student Success Commons at York County Community College: Writing

A Message from Sue, the Writing Tutor

"If you say it out loud, or you write it down, or you type it out—that's something that the writing tutor can help you with. Whether it's a discussion board post...formatting your references... finding resources for a paper, or even just coming up with an idea for a paper or speech—any of those things those are things that I can help you with. There's really nothing too small or too large. I'm not going to edit your paper from top to bottom, but we can talk about big ideas, what types of things you can do to fix your paper, or maybe just you need a confidence boost to say that your paper is looking good.

I can point you in the right direction and get you where you need to be."

What can a Writing tutor help with?

Let's talk about it!  When you meet with a writing tutor, they will discuss your ideas and how to best express your thoughts in writing.

Revise--you know you want to! You will get feedback about the organization, tone, thesis, citations and more.  Every paper can be revised so be prepared to hear that your paper is not perfect yet.

They won't "edit" your paper.  They want you to become the best writer you can be, and it takes a lot of practice to write well.  To that end, they will decline to "edit" your paper, but they will provide you with excellent feedback to best organize your ideas!

Citation style:  Whether it MLA or APA, they can help you understand citation style!
