The Center for Writing & Academic Achievement

The Center for Writing and Academic Achievement (CWAA) provides welcoming, peer-based academic support in a comfortable and inclusive environment. Our services cover all academic disciplines and support students at various points in their academic careers. We believe in fostering confidence and a positive attitude in tutors and tutees alike, while encouraging a love of learning beyond the classroom. The CWAA is located in MacPhaidin Library, room 314.

During the academic year, the CWAA is here to help with both writing  and content area support. Whether you need a little extra help or just want to work on that final touch, be sure to stop by!

We are currently working on the Fall 2017 schedule, which will be published before the start of classes. Check out our sample schedule below to get a sesnse of what may be offered.

 

Sample CWAA Tutoring Schedules

The schedule varies from semester to semester and depends upon the type of service and subject that you are seeking. Tutoring is not offered over the summer or winter break. Most sessions are offered on a drop-in basis; see the schedules below. Please bring your syllabus, class notes or assignment, and text to have a successful session. Please note that there are tutors available for other subjects not listed, especially foreign languages. Contact Susan Wall for more information.
