Writing Center Services
Drop-In Writing Tutorials: These tutorials are offered on a drop-in basis in the Writing Center and last for 30 minutes. During these tutorials, tutors can talk with students about any aspect of a writing assignment for any course offered at Grand View. In a 30-minute tutorial, students should expect to go over 4-5 pages of writing with a tutor.
Scheduled Writing Tutorials: Students can make an appointment for a tutorial either online or by phone at 515-263-2855.
Grammar Hotline: For a quick question regarding grammar or the writing process, contact the Writing Center’s Grammar Hotline, at email@example.com or 515-263-2855. Our tutors will be happy to answer quick questions, when they are not tutoring, or will work to find the answer.
Workshops: The Writing Center offers workshops for students and faculty. These workshops address everything from starting the writing process to correctly documenting your sources. Workshops will be advertised with plenty of advance notice. Students can enroll in a workshop through email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 515-263-2855.
Resources: Handouts of quick references to parts of speech and various aspects of the writing process are available in the Writing Center.
Evidence of a visit for an instructor: Our tutors can provide evidence of tutorial for your instructor (in the form of a “blue card”), so that an instructor is aware of a student visit.
For more information about the Writing Center, contact Dr. Alison Bright, writing center director, at email@example.com.
