Tutoring Philosophy

We help students learn to be better writers and better self-editors through a non-directive tutoring process. This process involves utilizing a questioning technique to draw information out of the writer, rather than simply providing him or her with the correction/revision. We do not rewrite, proofread, or edit papers.
