Writing Center

Welcome to the Normandale Writing Center

We offer a mixture of online and in-person appointments!

Book an Online Writing Center Appointment

Online appointments take place over Zoom. After booking your appointment, you will receive a confirmation email with a zoom link to use for your appointment.

Book an In-Person Writing Center Appointment

In-person appointments take place in the Tutoring and Writing Center (C2190). 

At times, it may be necessary for us to replace in-person appointment with online appointments; you will be notified in advance of these changes.

Have questions? Need help scheduling an appointment? Email us or drop by the Tutoring Center (C2190) from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm Monday-Thursday or 8:00 am - 12:00 pm Friday to speak with a staff member.

What's the Writing Center all about?

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.

We offer Normandale students free peer tutoring on your writing assignments for classes across Normandale, as well as your scholarship and application essays.

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

Healthcare and Wellness Majors is an online tutoring service that is also available to registered Normandale students. services are limited to 15 hours per student, per school year, so we recommend using it as a backup option for when the Tutoring and Writing Centers aren't available. tutoring is available 24/7.

With students can:

  • Interact with a live tutor
  • Submit your writing for any class to the Online Writing Lab
  • Submit a question and receive a reply from a tutor
