How Does Tutoring in the on-campus Language Hub Work?

  • Masks are encouraged.
  • Make sure to bring your written assignment sheet from your instructor.
  • Tutoring is a collaborative process (it is not a proofreading or editing service). Your tutor will point out areas of strength and help you to improve by discussing thoughts, ideas, and suggestions with you.
  • At the end of your 20-45 minute session, your work will be improved if you implement feedback, but you may require additional sessions to reach your personal writing goals.
  • Feel free to utilize this resource as often as needed.

Thursday, Feb. 22, 9:30-10:45 am
Marie Hall 133

When students think of plagiarism, blatant copy/pasting is what comes to mind, but plagiarism is a complex issue. This student friendly workshop will use examples to show all forms of plagiarism including lesser understood infractions like paraphrasing without citation, missing or incorrect citations, and recycling work. Students will become confident in summarizing, quoting, and paraphrasing and will gain insight into how professors use these plagiarism tools. We’ll discuss collegiate expectations, why academic integrity matters, and strategies students can utilize for ensuring scholastic excellence. MLA is the preferred format for many humanities disciplines. In this workshop, we’ll cover basic formatting, in-text citations, and the works cited page. 


Tuesday, March 5, 9:30 to 10:45 am
Fox Science Room 264

Friday, Apr. 12th, 8:00-9:15 am
Davidson Health Sciences Lecture Hall 

Research databases are an integral tool for all college students, but combing through so much information can feel overwhelming. This workshop demystifies the process of using library and scholarly databases. We’ll discuss how to find reliable sources, do searches in real time, demonstrate helpful database features, and strategies for finding the most relevant material. We’ll define source types, and students will have time to conduct their own searches, ask questions, and locate sources that meet professors’ requirements. APA format is the preferred format for many social and physical/life sciences. We’ll cover basic formatting, abstracts, in-text citations, and reference pages.
