Writing and Reading Center

Writing: it's an essential skill for students and in many careers. But putting words down on a page and expressing yourself clearly can be a daunting challenge for even the most experienced students and professionals.

Fortunately, at Lincoln University, assistance is available. The Writing and Reading Center (WRC) offers free tutoring services to all students in all majors, and at all stages of the writing process. If you're working on an essay for a class and need to know if it'll make the grade, you can submit it to the center and have it reviewed at no cost. To submit your essay online for review, click here.

You can also visit the WRC and work directly with our qualified, caring staff. Our tutors are dedicated to offering you the highest standard of academic excellence in tutoring, writing, and reading. When you visit the WRC, you can:

  • Receive individual tutoring on writing and reading: no appointment necessary.
  • Write and conduct research at more than 20 computer workstations, outfitted with Microsoft Office.
  • Fulfill ENG 099 Writing Center requirements.
  • Prepare or revise the Writing Proficiency Program portfolio.
  • Write and revise resumes, cover letters, and graduate school personal statements.
  • Get feedback on senior or master’s capstone or thesis.
  • Get help with proper citations and formatting.

WRC hours of operation during the Summer are Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. We are located in Wright Hall, Room 212. Walk-ins are welcome. Online submissions will be reviewed in the order they are received. To schedule weekend tutoring, please email sgamie@lincoln.edu
