How We Work With Students
The SUNY Broome Writing Center’s professional tutors are eager to help students in any course, regardless of their level of experience, expertise or confidence as writers. We help writers in many subjects, including Biology, Criminal Justice, Economics, English, History, Mathematics, Psychology, Education, Dental Hygiene, Medical Assistant, to name a few. In addition, we assist with resumes, college application essays, or letters.
In tutorial sessions, tutors talk with students about their writing; we ask questions that help writers see their texts through the audience’s eyes and encourage them to explore options for drafting and revising their texts. Students often seek help with thesis statements, organization, development, citation of sources, development of proofreading strategies, and other concerns.
Writing Center tutors work by appointment with students individually or in small groups (tutors facilitate these group sessions of 2-3 students). To schedule appointments, visit the center in Library Rm. 104 or call (778-5632).
Limited online tutorial feedback is offered for students who are only enrolled in online, off-campus, evening, or weekend courses, and so are not on campus during weekdays when the center is open.
