The Writing Center provides free writing assistance for SUNY Oswego students across the disciplines.  Our tutors are committed to help students throughout the various stages of the writing process, including understanding writing assignments, getting started on papers by brainstorming and outlining, and revising drafts.  The Writing Center is NOT an editing service. Therefore, students will come prepared to discuss their writing prompts and papers in a collaborative and welcoming atmosphere.

*Education students seeking assistance with the edTPA can only work with these trained writing tutors: Kelly Lennon and Mikayla McGarry.

Important:  Please bring a hard copy of your paper.  Tutors cannot assist students on laptops or other devices.
