Writing/Speech Center

The Writing/Speech Center is staffed by expert instructional associates/tutors who are available to assist you with any writing assignment or speech presentation. We will work with you in a one-on-one Zoom or tabletop consultation to go over assignments, giving you the tools and resources necessary to become better students. We welcome you to use our Writing/Speech Center services regularly, and we’ll try our best to help you satisfy your learning needs and achieve your academic goals.

We encourage you to view the orientation video below to review access, services, and out tutoring options.

The physical spaces for Writing/Speech Centers are open with limited seating and access to computers. The Center hours may be different than the wider availability offered for the virtual tutoring options.

Want to "drop-off" a writing or speech assignment for review by an FSW Writing Center Tutor?

  • Same day review is not available; assignments must be emailed at least 48-72 hours in advance
  • Requests directly to Writing/Speech Center staff will not be reviewed

In order for you to get the most out of each review and save time, we recommend taking the following steps:

  • Know which primary concerns you would like to address (citations, thesis, grammar).
  • Send assignment instruction to us.

Email Laura.Price@fsw.edu for more information on writing/speech services available through Academic Support Writing Services.

Writing/Speech Center Services

  • A one-on-one consultation where we discuss your writing or speech assignment with you for up to 40 minutes.
  • Assistance at any point in the writing/speech-crafting process.
  • A discussion of strengths and weaknesses of your writing or oral communications skills, allowing you the opportunity to take what you have learned and put it into action.
  • A consultation sheet that documents the content we discussed during the session.
  • A collection of handouts and other resources to help improve your writing or oral communication ability.

Preparing For Your Remote Zoom Visit

  • Know the specifics of the assignment, your professor’s expectations, and what you wish to accomplish during each tutoring session.
  • You will need to use a computer or laptop to get the most out of your session. A microphone and camera are recommended but not required.
  • Thoroughly read all related materials (e.g. short stories, text chapters, novels, etc.)
  • Give considerable thought to the assignment prior to your session.
  • Have a specific question regarding the assignment when coming in for help.
  • Allow sufficient time before your assignment is due to work with your tutor.
  • Realize that by discussing your work-in-progress, we will guide you through prewriting, drafting, and revising. Although we will address patterns of errors in your papers, it is your responsibility to proofread and edit your own work.
  • Make sure you have a distraction-free place to work without interruption for the duration of your session. Mute your phone during your consultation.
