How do I make an appointment?

To get started, register for an account by clicking the link to the left. Then, sign in and choose a time to visit.

What should I bring?

Bring your ideas and a willingness to work. Tutors also like to see assignment sheets and any work you have done so far (unless you're just starting out, in which case, bring your questions). Consultations are active exchanges between the student and the tutor, so don't expect the tutor to do the work for you.

How long will the meeting take?

An average session takes thirty to sixty minutes. When you book the appointment, you must choose the session length in a drop-down menu. You can book up to three appointments a week.



The McDaniel College Writing Center empowers students of diverse abilities and backgrounds to claim ownership of the identity of “writer” and supports a vibrant community of writers.


At McDaniel College Writing Center, we positively support students at every step of the writing process. As students ourselves, we bring our own experiences of the writer’s journey to those we serve. We meet the particular needs of everyone who comes to the Writing Center, assisting those students in discovering the critical thinking and writing skills they already possess, helping them hone these skills, and guiding them to produce writing they enjoy creating and are comfortable sharing.

How does this work?

Any member of the McDaniel community can can come to the Writing Center at any stage of the writing process for free help! You can also come to just practice a writing skill! Our team of undergraduate consultants are trained peer tutors from a wide range of personal and academic backgrounds, and their focus is on making you a stronger, more independent writer.
