September 8, 2014 at 9:27 am

The University Writing Center opens Monday, Sept. 8.

The center offers nearly 40 hours of one-on-one tutoring per week. Appointments are available during the following days and times:

Monday-Thursday — 10 a.m. -4 p.m.

Friday — 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

Students should call 503-5883 or stop by HPAC 136 to make an appointment and guarantee they will be able to meet with a tutor. If no tutors are available, the Writing Center staff will be able to guide students to useful resources on the Writing Center website.

Tutoring sessions are typically geared around one of five stages of the writing process:

  • Brainstorming and Planning
  • Drafting and Organizing
  • Basic Research and Integration of Sources
  • Documentation and Format
  • Revision and Editing

On making an appointment, students should know what stage of the writing process they would like to work on. In addition, students should bring a copy of their assignment to the tutoring session. We will send you a notice via e-mail informing you of your students’ visits. This email has been modified in order to provide you with information about the session in the most efficient way possible.

Students who do not attend classes at the Spartanburg campus (distance-education students, UC Greenville students, etc.) are encouraged to make use of  web resources, which can be found at www.uscupstate.edu/writing. These students are also eligible to schedule appointments through our distance-tutoring program.
