The E. Kent & Barbara Culler Robinson Writing Center offers free one-on-one tutoring sessions to undergraduate and graduate students throughout all stages of the writing process. Whether you are brainstorming ideas for a paper or revising your final draft, the Robinson Writing Center tutors can help you to communicate with your audience clearly and effectively.
Our mission at the Robinson Writing Center is to support students from all academic disciplines in improving their skills in written communication and gaining confidence in their writing abilities. With these goals in mind, our tutors aim to teach rhetorical principles that not only help students to approach the task at hand, but also transfer across different courses and writing assignments.
We also support students in writing resumes, cover letters, and personal statements for graduate school applications. Students can make appointments to work one-on-one with a tutor on these documents. They can also attend our workshop series on professional writing.

The Robinson Writing Center is located in L14, on the bottom floor of the Elbin Library.

During the Spring 2019 semester, the Robinson Writing Center will offer appointments at the following times:
- To make the most of your tutoring session, schedule your appointment at least one hour in advance. You are welcome to walk into the Center, but we recommend that you make an appointment to ensure that a tutor is available.
- Students who are more than ten minutes late may be asked to reschedule their appointment.
- If you do not attend a scheduled appointment, you will be marked as a no-show. If you no-show for three appointments, your WCOnline account will be disabled. You must then visit the Writing Center or email Dr. Tennant at [email protected] request that your account be enabled.
- The Writing Center is not an editing service. Tutors will work with students to develop strategies for identifying and resolving language-based issues, but tutors will not proofread or fix these issues for students.
