Mission Statement

Our mission at the Hofstra University Writing Center is to work with writers across disciplines and of various experience levels, learning styles, and linguistic backgrounds. We aim to accomplish this through one-to-one sessions with tutors who are trained in collaborative learning practices. To continually improve the support we offer, the Writing Center serves as research site for undergraduate tutors.

Tutors work to empower writers and promote independence. Our investment is not in correcting a writer’s essay, but rather in helping writers understand the expectations of their readers to fulfill the needs of the writing situation. To this end, we offer a structured, yet safe and supportive learning environment that welcomes writers to seek and receive assistance in obtaining the skills that they will need throughout their academic careers.
