Writing Center

The Tutoring Center at Normandale Community College

Welcome!  Curious about how to use the Writing Center?

Writing Center tutors focus on the Writing Process

The Writing Center offers students peer tutoring on college writing assignments. The Writing Center tutors help with all parts of the writing process and many writing tasks including the following: 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 services fully online for the Fall semester.
