    • Writing Support and Tutoring

      The Kettering College Writing Center offers students the opportunity to work on various projects in one-on-one conferences with trained tutors. We offer these sessions both in our center and online via our scheduling service. Make an appointment below or come see us in person. We are located within the Academic Support Department.

      What we do:
      Our goals are for students to develop as writers and thinkers and to help with projects of all kinds including research papers, scholarship essays, medical/dental school application essays, resumes and cover letters, speeches and presentations, multimodal projects, and APA formatting. We are happy to help with these projects at any stage of the process including brainstorming, outlining, revision, or even practicing the timing and delivery of presentations.

      What we don’t do:
      We will not proofread your papers or correct your grammar/mechanics for you. Instead, we are here to help you learn how to improve your own writing. We will help identify areas that you could improve on, including grammatical errors, and help you understand how to make corrections on immediate and future writing tasks.
