The Writing Center: More Than Just Papers
What do you think of when you think of the McDaniel Writing Center? If you’re like a lot of students, you probably imagine bringing in essays or research papers to work on.
While our tutors love to help you brainstorm, organize, revise, and refine your academic papers, they also bring a variety of other talents and skills to the table—and these are skills you can take advantage of here in the Writing Center.
Any of our tutors can help you put together a fantastic PowerPoint or Prezi. We’ll help you make sure that your presentation is organized, engaging, easy to read—and that it looks cool too. We’re even happy to be an audience for you if you’d like to practice presenting and get some feedback.
Some of our tutors have skills with software for creative projects. If you need to use them for a class project or you’ve ever wanted to learn some basics, we have tutors who can help with Photoshop, InDesign, and iMovie. Check our Meet the Tutors page to find out which tutors know which programs.
We’re happy to help you with professional development projects and other applications. If you’re applying for jobs, we can help you with resumes, cover letters, and even LinkedIn profiles. And if you’re pursuing scholarships, grad school, or other post-grad opportunities, we can help you with essays and personal statements. Don’t forget that the CEO (Center for Experience and Opportunity) can help you with these things too—take advantage of their services and ours to get the best of both worlds and make your applications shine!
The types of things tutors can help you with are not limited to what you see here. Our tutors are a talented bunch, so chances are, there’s a tutor who can help you with what you need.
