The main focus of the ARC is its writing tutoring service.
Our staff is trained to work with students at all levels on writing organization,
content, and mechanics. We can help you brainstorm for ideas, form a thesis,
and back up your opinion in a paper. The ARC is also the place to go to
help organize your thoughts or to make your writing flow smoothly and correctly.
We are also available for a final run-through with an objective reader who
can help you identify everything from grammar mistakes to faulty mechanics!
