“I have found the undergraduate tutors, graduate fellow, and directors of the writing center to be engaging, knowledgeable, and helpful. This is a wonderful resource for students and community members.”
“The Writing Center is a place where minority students, international students, graduate students and other types of students feel they can go to learn and have an open dialogue about writing. It is wonderful that so many of the undergraduate tutors speak multiple languages. Thank you for a wonderful writing center.”
“I always feel like I walk out of the center with not only clarification about a particular writing issue, but also armed with new skills or approaches that will help improve my skills as a writer.”
“The writing center was by far the highlight of my Merrimack experience. I worked in the center for three years, and it truly transformed my world.”
“As a tutor, I learned about the various learning styles of students, as well as different techniques to help both myself and them. Aside from tutoring and learning, the writing center helped me further develop my interpersonal communication skills, and my confidence.”
“The staff are the most kind and helping people, and have become some of my best friends. Prior to working here, I was afraid that I didn’t have the capabilities to successfully communicate, let alone be a tutor. However, that has changed because both the staff and directors have such faith and trust in each person that walks through the doors. Thanks to the writing center I feel like I have the tools to succeed in so much more than writing papers.”
The Writing Center is on the third floor of McQuade Library, between the Math Center and Alden Lab.
