Who Are We?
The Writing Center is one-on-one, in-person writing assistance with a Kirtland English instructor or a Kirtland student tutor. Located in the Room 2013 at the Grayling campus, English faculty and student tutors are available to help students improve their writing at the global level with attention to argument, structure, organization and effectiveness. The focus is on helping students develop their writing skills and techniques for proofing and editing their work.
