What's the Writing Center all about?

The Writing Center offers Normandale students free peer tutoring on their writing assignments for classes across Normandale, as well as scholarship and application essays. At the Writing Center, students' needs lead! When you visit the Writing Center, you can expect your tutor to ask what you'd like to get out of the tutoring session and then work alongside you to accomplish that goal and improve your writing.

Writing Center tutors help with all parts of the writing process and many aspects of academic writing, including  brainstorming, thesis development, analysis, organization of ideas and paragraphs, citation (MLA and APA), and sentence structure.

The Writing Center, together with the Tutoring Center, will offer online services for the Summer semester.
