The Catawba College Writing Center provides free, one-to-one tutoring to all Catawba students who are working on writing projects. Our undergraduate peer tutors work with writers of all abilities and at every stage of the writing process.

The Writing Center's primary goal is to help Catawba students become better writers. Thus, while tutors will offer feedback and strategies to help students improve their writing, students will do the writing and revising themselves.

Some (but not all) things we help with include:

types of writing

  • Homework response
  • Essay
  • Research paper
  • Lab report
  • Resume/Cover Letter
  • Multimodal projects
  • Group project
  • Creative writing

elements of writing

  • Understanding the assignment
  • Thesis/argument
  • Developing ideas
  • Researching
  • Quote integration
  • Paragraphing
  • Topic sentences
  • Issues of clarity/style
  • Intro/conclusion
  • Organization
  • Transitions
  • Bibliography/Citation
  • MLA/APA/Chicago formatting
  • Sentence-level concerns
  • Editing/Proofreading
  • Title


Appointment lengths vary based on the length of your paper. When you come for an appointment, bring a copy of the assignment and any notes or drafts that you have written. Students who "walk in" may work with a tutor if there are no scheduled appointments. Come to ADM 211 and see how we can help you improve your writing!
