Mission Statement

Our mission in the Hofstra University Writing Center is to work with current Hofstra undergraduate and graduate student-writers of varying experience levels, learning styles, and linguistic backgrounds. We work in and across disciplines. We support students’ growth as writers through one-on-one sessions with tutors trained in collaborative learning practices. Our sessions are conversation based. Rather than editing writing, tutors help students gain independence by discussing the writing process in its entirety, including genre, audience expectations, and revision strategies. We place particular emphasis on meeting the needs of a particular writing situation. We offer a structured and safe learning environment that helps undergraduate and graduate students excel in college-level writing and helps them develop skills that lead to both academic persistence and success beyond graduation.
