Writing Center Guidelines and Procedures



□  1.  I understand that my tutor will not fix my paper for me.


□  2.  I understand that my writing tutor is not my editor or proofreader. I am responsible for writing, revising, and correcting my own work. If I need help with grammar, my tutor can teach me grammar rules, but he or she will not correct my grammar for me.


□  3.  I will come prepared for each tutoring session with two copies of my paper, a writing utensil, and assignment sheet (if necessary). I will also come ready to share my goals for the session with my tutor. We prioritize high order concerns but can also help with other types of issues:




□  4.  My tutor is not a substitute for my instructor. I will ask my instructor questions about the course or assignment.


□  5. I understand that tutoring does not guarantee a particular grade. My tutor has no bearing on what grade the final product receives.


□  6.  I understand that tutoring opportunities are limited to two sessions per week, including in-person and OWL sessions. 


□  7.  I understand Lehigh’s policy on plagiarism and academic honesty and will ask my tutor or my instructor if I have questions about these policies.


□  8. I may be denied tutoring if I make appointments and don’t come to them, if I am late, or if I am not prepared.


If I need to cancel an appointment, I will call the Writing Center as soon as possible: (610) 758-4525.


□  9.  I have read and I understand the above stated guidelines and procedures.
