The Writing Center at Toles

The Writing Center is open to all cadets during Night Study Hall for writing assistance. Tutors are available to assist in all aspects of the writing process as well as understanding assignments, MLA formatting, thesis statement construction, proofreading, spelling, and basic grammar mechanics. Tutors will not write or rewrite a paper for a cadet. Cadets must check-in at the Writing Center and bring a copy of the instructor’s assignment. Come early, regularly, and do not wait until the last minute or night before the assignment is due to receive extensive writing assistance.
