The Writing Centers provide tutoring for students enrolled in Writing Program classes. There are three Writing Centers: the Livingston Writing Center, located in the B-wing of Lucy Stone Hall; the Douglass/Cook Writing Center, located at 135 George Street; and the Plangere Writing Center, located on the third floor of Murray Hall. Only the Plangere Writing Center is open during the summer months. Tutoring sessions are scheduled for one eighty-minute class period per week for at least five weeks, and are available free of charge. Students are tutored in the full range of expository writing, from basic composition to advanced research, business, and scientific writing courses. The Writing Centers offer morning, afternoon, and evening sessions to ensure access for University College and other working students.

SIGN UP FOR TUTORING
- You are making a minimum five-week commitment at the same time slot. You will be tutored at the same time as another student: i.e. each tutor works with two tutees for one 80-minute period.Our tutors are not editors. They will work with you on improving your writing, but they will not do it for you.
- We will register you for 1.5 e-credits for a course called "Writing Center" (355:096:02). You will receive a grade of Pass or Fail for this course, and it will appear on your official Rutgers transcript.You may only miss one session of tutoring. As soon as you miss two sessions, you will be dropped from tutoring and receive a failing grade.
- After filling out the webform, please wait 1 business day and then call or stop by our office to find out your session information: (848)445-4048. We are in Lucy Stone Hall, B104A.
- When you arrive at the Writing Center, go to room 103 or room 106 and check for your tutor. She will have a name-tag on the desk. Please bring all of your coursework to each session, including your textbook and graded papers. You ALWAYS have something to do in a session. Your tutor will never let you go early because you have "nothing to do." Writing is a continual process.
