Our Story

Here at the TTU Writing Center, we strive to elevate our students and change their approach to writing for the better. Writing is the gateway to opportunity, and one of the most advantageous ways to share our voices with the world. Our tutors are a blend of undergraduate and graduate students as well as faculty who love working with the English language.

When students visit us, we do our best to conduct an easy-going conversation and lead our students to embrace or expand on their ideas. Above all, our goal is to share the love of not necessarily writing, but communicating; and reminding our students that what they have to say is valuable.
