One-on-One Peer Mentoring


Computer-based Tutorials

The Briar Cliff University Writing Center is dedicated to promoting student success across the curriculum. Our Writing Center Mentors offer one-on-one peer collaboration during all stages of the writing process—from invention strategies to drafting, organizing, editing and revising. The primary goal of our Writing Mentors is to foster the growth and development of student writers by emphasizing writing as a process, by modeling positive critical thinking, reading, and writing skills and strategies, and by encouraging engagement with effective learning resources. The primary method Mentors use to help students develop competency in writing is to diagnose persistent error patterns at the word, sentence, paragraph, essay, or style and formatting levels of the document and to work with students to address these patterns.

  1. I was wondering if I can send my papers to you to be critiqued. i have not written a paper for 15 years.And I need to know how to send them to the writing center. thanks Petricia

    • Petricia,
      You may send us any paper you would like us to help you revise. We would be happy to help you! You can send us your paper by e-mail at writing.center@briarcliff.edu or you can bring them to us in Bishop Mueller Library. We are on the top floor in the corner. If you e-mail us, we will set up an appointment for you to come in and have a revising session with one of our mentors. If you drop off your paper, you can sign up for a meeting with us when you drop it off. Our hours are on the right hand side of our website under “Here’s How to Contact Us” along with other information you may find useful.
