The Writing Center

Writing Center

The WVU Writing Center is a peer tutoring environment whose mission is to help students become stronger writers. Tutors can help students with writing genres such as:

  • analytical and research papers
  • lab reports
  • portfolios
  • thesis and dissertation projects
  • slide decks (e.g. Powerpoint)
  • personal statements
  • just about anything that involves writing

Our goal is to help students succeed in all of their communication endeavors.
