The Writing Center

The NMHU Writing Center supports all writers—undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff—using collaborative, conversational methods. We are a place where anyone can come to talk with a tutor about whatever writing they are working on, whether it’s for a class, for a job application, or for something else. We also help at any point in the process, so writers can come for an appointment whether they are just getting started or polishing a final draft. We work with writers of all disciplines and provide help in all areas of writing, including structure and organization, development of ideas, thesis statements, sentence structure and mechanics, citations. For those teaching classes, we also offer workshops on a variety of topics and class visits to explain our services.

This semester, we are using a Microsoft form for appointment requests. We generally respond to these requests within 24 hours. Requests made on Friday after closing will be addressed at the beginning of the following workweek.

We are available for appointments at the following times: 

Monday: 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Tuesday: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Wednesday: 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Thursday: 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Friday: 8 a.m. to 1 p.m .

All appointments will take place via the Writing Center’s Zoom room: https://nmhu.zoom.us/j/6872757870. Students can join this link to do a walk-in appointment, but appointments are strongly encouraged, as they guarantee time with a tutor. After entering the link, students will be placed in a waiting room and admitted by a tutor, then placed into a breakout room with a tutor for their appointment.

You can e-mail questions about our services to writingcenter@nmhu.edu.
