The Writing Center is designed so that trained peer tutors assist students orally, ONE-ON-ONE, with writing assignments,¬† writing skills such as wording of ideas, grammar and punctuation and documentation, creative writing, and internet searches. It is available to all Georgetown students.¬† Students can also take English CLEP exams in the Center to see if they can exempt ENG 111 OR 112.
Thanks, in part, to a generous grant from the Steele-Reese Foundation, the Center has been expanded to include an extensive library of writing exercises and tutorials to assist students in writing across the curriculum. This page features an in-depth description of the various services available to you.
