At the NMHU Writing Center, students learn

  • principles and strategies for the most effective organization of their materials
  • to summarize, paraphrase, and quote accurately
  • to document sources correctly
  • to understand and apply instructors’ comments so they can revise their papers effectively
  • to recognize and correct errors of grammar and mechanics
  • to edit and proofread their papers

Perhaps most importantly, they learn to develop a sense of ownership and responsibility for their writing.

In addition to tutoring, we provide a library of source materials on writing, study skills, research papers, and documentation; computers for research and word processing; and in-class workshops.
