We Are Here to Help You Become a Better Writer, Researcher, Designer, Creator

Staffed by certified English teachers and student peer-tutors who are available every period of the school day to help you with your writing, Room 212 is the place to be for writing.

  • We coach students on how to plan, generate, organize, research, draft, develop, refine, proofread, and revise their ideas.
  • We work with teachers to include the writing process in their curricular units. We team teach mini-units on the writing process geared to your curriculum.
  • We conference one-to-one with students by listening, paraphrasing, perception-checking, leading, interpreting, questioning, observing, modeling, and telling.
  • We cater to students at their ability level as they grapple with writing assignments and projects. A long-standing axiom of Writing Center philosophy: "Our job is not to make better writing, but to make better writers."
  • What We Don't Do: We don't proof, correct, revise, or grade writing or do it for the student. We are not a "paper mill," "grammar academy," or "fix-up shop."


We love writing, finding things out, and creating things. Stop by and ask for our assistance. It's why were here.
