About the Center


Welcome to the Hofstra University Writing Center, where we offer free, confidential, one-to-one support for all students, faculty, and staff. We offer help in all areas of writing ranging  from Writing Studies classes to the humanities and the science fields. We can also assist with resumes, cover letters, and personal statements. We can help at any stage of the writing process, whether we are brainstorming, working on a first draft or putting the finishing touches on a final product.

Our mission at the Writing Center is to work with writers of various experience levels, learning styles, and from across all disciplines in an effort to support their growth as readers, thinkers, and writers. We aim to accomplish this through one-on-one sessions with tutors who are trained to assess both the writer and the writing and to utilize strategies that inform, empower, and promote independence.

Because the Writing Center’s work is predicated on a pedagogy that values the writer’s authority, we offer guidance through methods of inquiry and process. Our investment is not in correcting a writer’s essay, but rather in helping writers understand the expectations of their readers and fulfill the needs of the writing situation. To this end, we offer a structured, yet safe and supportive, learning environment that welcomes writers to seek and receive assistance in obtaining the skills that they will need throughout their academic careers and beyond.
