Department of English
The William Paterson University Writing Center, located in Atrium 128, provides one-on-one tutoring for anyone in the university community working on any kind of writing in any stage of development. Tutorial sessions typically take thirty minutes to an hour. We talk about style, logic, voice, transitions, grammar, and organization, and we work with students so that they learn to do the important work of proofreading and editing their own writing. We do not, however, talk about grades, and we do not proofread students' work for them. We work on issues that are going to contribute to students' long-term growth as writers.
Summer hours are Monday-Thursday 10:00-3:00
The Atrium is the long brick building in between the David and Lorraine Cheng Library and the Shea Center for Performing Arts, facing parking lots 3 and 4. The Writing Center is on the first floor, in Atrium 128, underneath the stairs.
Our phone number is 973-720-2633.
