Writing Center

The Tutoring Center at Normandale Community College

Welcome!  Curious about how to use the Writing Center?

Writing help is available inside the Tutoring Center for any Normandale class. Writing tutors are peer tutors who have been recommended by their instructors and trained to assist students with their writing.  Several faculty tutors are also available.
