The University Writing Center opens Monday, January 30, 2017

The University Writing Center is a free service for students, offering advice and assistance with writing assignments from any course or subject. Tutors can assist you in improving your composing process, as well as with difficulties with development, organization, style, documentation, and mechanics.  Please call 610-683-4733, email wrcenter@kutztown.edu, or come in to Old Main 132 to set up an appointment.

Besides our hours during the week, we will also be open select Sundays near midterms and final exams. Please encourage your students to come for guidance and to bring their assignment sheets with them.

RESOURCES: In addition to helping students with various steps of the writing process for any courses, we can also help with documentation of sources; we have reference sources for numerous citation methods from the various disciplines on campus.

IN CLASS UWC INFORMATION SESSIONS: If you would like one of our tutors to come to your class to bring handouts and to familiarize students with the Writing Center (with a 5-10 minute talk), please contact me with the desired date and time (pytleski@kutztown.edu). Or let me know if you would like to bring a class to the Writing Center for a tour or would like a tutor to help with an assignment in your classroom.
