Writing Center

Welcome to The Writing Center

The Writing Center, housed within College of Western Idaho's (CWI) Tutoring Services, is a place where students can access help with academic, professional, and creative writing. From research papers and essays, regardless of the subject or discipline, to resumes and personal statements — the Writing Center is here to help you succeed!

Our support is free to all currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff. For more information check out our About Us page.

Writing Center Tutors

Writing Center tutors are careful readers and listeners. As such, they will not edit papers, but will, instead, offer strategies for revision and help identify errors. Tutors can assist you at any stage of the writing process, including brainstorming, drafting, revising, and polishing.

Ways to Connect

Connect with us early and often to learn how we can help reduce stress and encourage you toward success! 

  • Meet with a CWI writing tutor in-person or via video chat. 
  • Submit your writing project to ACES, our online consultation service, for written feedback. 
  • Connect with CWI's partner, Tutor.com, for quick feedback. 

Handouts and Resources

Tutoring Services has a wide variety of handouts and other resources available to students. Whether you need help with math or formatting a paper, our handouts are excellent guides. Handouts are currently being added to this site, so please check back often or reach out to us if the handout you need is not available. View Handouts and Other Resources
